Glomerular Disorders

Glomerular disease can occur by itself (eg, affecting only the kidney), or may be associated with an underlying medical condition that affects other organ systems, such as lupus, diabetes, or certain infections. Glomerular disease can develop suddenly (called Acute), or develop slowly over a period of years (called Chronic). Treatment of glomerular disease depends upon its cause and type. Many diseases affect kidney function by attacking the glomeruli, the tiny units within the kidney where blood is cleaned. Glomerular diseases include many conditions with a variety of genetic and environmental causes, but they fall into two major categories:

Glomerulonephritis (gloh-MEHR-yoo-loh-nef-RY-tis) describes the inflammation of the membrane tissue in the kidney that serves as a filter, separating wastes and extra fluid from the blood.

Glomerulosclerosis (gloh-MEHR-yoo-loh-skleh-ROH-sis) describes the scarring or hardening of the tiny blood vessels within the kidney.

  • Acute Pyelonephritis
  • Chronic Pyelonephritis
  • Acute Infectious Tubulointerstitial Nephritis (Tin)
  • Tin Associated with Systemic Infection
  • Chronic Infectious Tin (Chronic Pyelonephritis)
  • Specific Renal Infections
  • Xanthogranulomatous Pyelonephritis
  • Acute Interstitial Nephritis Associated to Drugs
  • Acute Tubular Necrosis
  • Other Tubular Changes
