A birth defect, also known as a congenital disorder, is a condition present at birth regardless of its cause. Birth defects may result in disabilities that may be physical, intellectual, or developmental. The disabilities can range from mild to severe. Birth defects are divided into two main types: structural disorders in which problems are seen with the shape of a body part and functional.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a long-term condition where the kidneys don't work as well as they should. It's a common condition often associated with getting older. It can affect anyone, but it's more common in people who are black or of south Asian origin. CKD can get worse over time and eventually the kidneys may stop working altogether, but this is uncommon. Many people with CKD are able.
The Bosniak classification system (I. CAKUT - congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract. Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome - (CNS, Nephrotic syndrome) rare kidney disorder characterized by heavy proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, and edema starting soon after birth. Most cases are caused by genetic abnormalities in the components of the glomerular filtration barrier, especially nephrin.
Classification, Structure, and Molecular Characteristics 2.1. Classification. According to the new guidelines for HSP nomenclature, the human HSP90 family includes five members that are categorized under the superfamily name HSPC. The recent names together with the alternative old names of HSP90 members are listed in Table 1. HSP90 proteins can be classified according to their cellular.
CAKUT are diverse and include abnormalities of the kidneys (agenesis, hypoplasia, dysplasia, and fusion anomalies), collecting systems (duplex collecting system, megacalycosis, pelviureteric junction obstruction (PUJO), and complications related to duplex collecting system), ureters (megaureter, retrocaval ureter, ectopic insertion, and ureterocele, the latter two pertaining to both single and.

Polycystic kidney disease is a disorder that affects the kidneys and other organs. Clusters of fluid-filled sacs, called cysts, develop in the kidneys and interfere with their ability to filter waste products from the blood. The growth of cysts causes the kidneys to become enlarged and can lead to kidney failure. Cysts may also develop in other organs, particularly the liver. Frequent.
Growth retardation, or intrauterine growth restriction, happens when your fetus doesn’t grow at a normal rate. Learn about the causes and treatment.
Sirenomelia (mermaid syndrome) is a rare congenital fetal anomaly with characteristic feature of complete or partial fusion of lower limbs. Although, this syndrome is incompatible with life due to the association of several congenital visceral abnormalities; however, there are few reports of surviving infants. Our first case was a live born, normally delivered at term by a 27-year-old third.
Abstract: BACKGROUND: Haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) is a disorder characterized by thrombotic microangiopathy, which is caused in 'typical forms' by gastrointestinal infection.

Introduction. Generalized arterial calcification (AC) of infancy (GACI) is an autosomal recessive disorder that features deposition of hydroxyapatite (HA) within the internal elastic lamina of medium and large arteries, leading to intimal fibrous tissue proliferation and blood vessel stenosis. 1-4 In 2008, a review of GACI found fewer than 200 reported patients. 5 Most cases (GACI1; OMIM.

MESTK has been included in the WHO renal tumour classification since 2004. Here, we present a case of 50-year-old female patient who underwent left radical nephrectomy for left renal mass. Postoperative positron emission tomography (PET) scan also showed nodal metastasis, for which, she was started on chemotherapy.

Various grading systems have been proposed for the classification of AHN on prenatal and postnatal ultrasonography. Mild isolated AHN represents up to 80% of cases, is considered to be benign, and majority of them resolve, stabilize, or improve during follow-up. Controversies exist regarding the diagnosis and management of some. Management of antenatal hydronephrosis. Duplicated renal.
Summary: Embryology and classification: Spinal cord development occurs through three consecutive periods: (i) gastrulation (2nd gestational week): the embryonic disk is converted from a bilaminar into a trilaminar arrangement, with formation of the intervening mesoderm; the notochord is laid down along the midline, identifying the craniocaudal embryonic axis; (ii) primary neurulation (18th.
