Nephrotic Syndrome

Posted by e-Medical PPT Monday, May 10, 2010
Nephrotic syndrome is a set of signs or symptoms that may point to kidney problems. Both children and adults can have nephrotic syndrome. The causes of and treatments for nephrotic syndrome in children are sometimes different from the causes and treatments in adults. For information about nephrotic syndrome in adults, see the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) publication Nephrotic Syndrome in Adults.
Nephrotic syndrome is not itself a disease. But it can be the first sign of a disease that damages the kidney’s tiny blood-filtering units, called glomeruli, where urine is made.
