Study of histopathological patterns in renal parenchymal disease
Dr. Govind Prasad, Dr. Roopak Kumar, Dr. Om Kumar
The causes of renal parenchymal disease are various. Some of them can damage patient’s kidney function gradually, which will lead to kidney failure eventually, and they are known as chronic kidney disease. Some can cause patients to have acute kidney injury, and cause severe condition in a short time. The most common causes of renal parenchymal disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. Besides, medicines, bacteria, virus, kidney stone etc, are also common causes of renal parenchymal disease. The study was planned in IGIMS to assess the Clinical profile and Correlative Histopathological Patterns in Renal Parenchymal Disease. From the present study it can be concluded that the presence of renal failure regardless of other abnormalities in urinalysis showed a trend toward IgA nephropathy. Membranous nephropathy may have a more varied presentation, with microhematuria and renal failure, than was originally thought and IgA nephropathy presenting as nephrotic syndrome may not be uncommon.
