  • congenital nephrotic syndrome
  • lipoid nephrosis
Clinical Information
  • A collection of symptoms that include severe edema, proteinuria, and hypoalbuminemia; it is indicative of renal dysfunction.
  • A condition characterized by severe proteinuria, greater than 3.5 g/day in an average adult. The substantial loss of protein in the urine results in complications such as hypoproteinemia; generalized edema; hypertension; and hyperlipidemias. Diseases associated with nephrotic syndrome generally cause chronic kidney dysfunction.
  • A kidney disease characterized by a high protein level in urine
  • A kidney disease with no or minimal histological glomerular changes on light microscopy and with no immune deposits. It is characterized by lipid accumulation in the epithelial cells of kidney tubules and in the urine. Patients usually show nephrotic syndrome indicating the presence of proteinuria with accompanying edema.
  • A rare autosomal recessive inherited nephrotic syndrome that is present in the first week of life. It manifests with edema and proteinuria and usually has a poor prognosis.
  • Diseases involving defective kidney glomeruli, characterized by massive proteinuria and lipiduria with varying degrees of edema, hypoalbuminemia, and hyperlipidemia.
  • Nephrotic syndrome: twenty-four hour urine protein > three grams. May be associated with hypoalbuminemia and hypercholesterolemia.
