    • Nephritic Disorders: Overview and Berger's Disease
    • Nephritic Syndrome
    • IgA Glomerulopathy
    • IgA Nephropathy

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Proteinuria > 3.5 g/day
    2. Hypertension
    3. Positive leukocyte esterase test
    4. Oliguria
    5. Periorbital edema
    1. Bun:Cr ratio
    2. RBC casts
    3. Hematuria
    4. Urine sediment
    5. Proteinuria
    1. Increased hydrostatic pressure due to salt retention.
    2. Decreased oncotic pressure due to protein loss.
    3. None of the answers are correct.
    4. Increased oncotic pressure due to polyuria.
    5. Increased hydrostatic pressure due to heart pump failure.
    1. Reabsorption of urea is compromised.
    2. RBC casts are a key finding indicating glomerular damage.
    3. Proteinuria greater than 150 mg/day but less than 3.5 g/day
    4. Tubular function is intact in acute disease.
    5. GFR is decreased due to glomerular inflammation.
    1. Mesangial IgA deposits
    2. Subendothelial IgA deposits
    3. Subepithelial IgM deposits
    4. Mesangial IgM deposits
    5. Subepithelial IgA deposits
    1. Length of time between infection and presentation
    2. Bun:Cr ratio
    3. Severity of disease on presentation
    4. Pattern on immunofluorescence
    5. Amount of proteinuria
    1. HSP is a vasculopathy that may present with IgA nephropathy.
    2. HSP is a disorder of IgM immune complexes.
    3. Only IgA nephropathy is treatable with steroids.
    4. IgA nephropathy is more prevalent in children compared to HSP.
    5. IgA nephropathy involves increased mucosal synthesis while HSP involves decreased clearance.
    1. Proteinuria > 3.5 g/day
    2. Increased serum IgA
    3. Granular pattern on immunofluorescence
    4. Decreased clearance of IgA

    Thumbs Up
    By William S. on 09. May 2017 for Nephritic Syndrome and IgA Nephropathy (Berger´s Disease)

    Another great lecture from Dr. Raj! For the other reviewer, at the end of the lecture, Dr. Raj says treat with corticosteroids for proteinuria and you also have to remember to treat the hypertension.

     
    How do we treat?
    By Hamed S. on 07. March 2017 for Nephritic Syndrome and IgA Nephropathy (Berger´s Disease)

    So we've made the diagnosis but what about treating IgA nephropathy?
