What is the Genetic Inheritance of Alport Syndrome?

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 00:39:58 +0100

Discussion Alport Syndrome is a genetic disease classically associated with progressive renal disease often leading to end stage renal disease, variable sensory neuronal deafness and ocular findings (perimacular retinopathy). A. Cecil Alport built on the work of others evaluating families with nephritis and/or hematuria. However he very clearly describes the third generation of a family with an X-linked dominant pattern and also emphasizes the syndrome’s associated deafness. Alport writes: “It will be seen from this that nearly all the children of three generations of one family suffer from hematuria or nephritis associated with deafness. The deafness, which has not been stressed in the literature on the subject, is one of the most distressing features of this extraordinary...

This is an amazingly heartfelt and hilarious moment.  Danny Kolzow, a 23-year-old nurse in Texas who has Alport Syndrome, experienced loss of kidney function and needed a transplant.

The emotional reveal was caught on video and recently went viral. After watching the clip, it’s not difficult to see why.  Heard Urine Need of a Kidney from Claire McMillan on Vimeo. Watch as...

What It Means When You See Blood In Your Urine

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 20:09:07 +0100

There are few moments more frightening than seeing blood in your urine. Happily, the cause is often not serious. The condition is more formally known as hematuria, and blood in the urine is usually the only symptom. Note that it does not take much blood to color urine pink or red, and the bleeding is usually not painful. Certain foods - notably rhubarb and beets - can also turn your urine a reddish color. In all instances of detecting blood in your urine, see a doctor. It is symptomatic of a number of ailments, including: • An enlarged prostate. As this gland begins to grow - commonly with the onset of middle age in men - it compresses the urethra, partially blocking urine flow. • Bladder or kidney stones. The minerals in urine may sometimes crystallize into small, hard stones. Thes...

Kidney donation runs in the family

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 13:14:06 +0100

Who’s who? Hover over the icons to find out. In addition to being relatives, Susie Percy, her brother Paul Bears, Jr., her father Paul Bears, Sr. and his brother-in-law Bill Cashell all have one thing in common — they each have one kidney. “Kidney donation is a family affair,” says Susie. Thirty-four years ago, Bill Cashell gave a kidney to his son Sean, who was born with a rare genetic condition called Alport syndrome. Eleven years later, when Sean needed a new kidney, his Uncle Paul, Sr. stepped forward. And nine years after that, when Sean was experiencing rejection, Paul Jr. offered to donate to his cousin. Fast forward 14 years. Bill Cashell’s grandson Joseph Abbott, an honor student and varsity soccer player, also born with Alport syndrome, finds himself needing a kid...

What Causes Proteinuria?

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 00:13:09 +0100

Discussion Proteinuria occurs relatively often in pediatric practice with 5-15% of school children having transient proteinuria, the most common cause. However, proteinuria can be a sign of kidney disease. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the proteinuria in light of the clinical situation. A good history and physical examination along with a full urinalysis and/or BUN and creatinine, or urine protein/creatinine ratio may be all that is necessary. Another patient with edema, hypertension or hematuria needs a fuller evaluation and treatment. Proteinuria is usually categorized into three groups to assist with evaluation and treatment and they include: transient, orthostatic or persistent. Transient means just that. It occurs only during the inciting problem and remits afterwards. It ge...
