Abstract

Prompt diagnosis is essential in the planning of effective treatment for the underlying diseases responsible for nephrotic syndrome. In this review, the typical clinical and laboratory features that facilitate diagnosis of these disorders are discussed. The distinction between systemic diseases, involving the kidney, and primary glomerular diseases is emphasised. These clinical and pathological distinctions influence prognosis, and form the basis of therapy to treat the underlying disorders. Our discussion focuses on diagnosis and specific treatment of these diseases, as well as therapy of the clinical consequences of nephrotic syndrome per se.
