A form of nephritis, which is, characterized by inflammation and often changes in glomerule which can be acute, chronic or accelerated.
Dilatation of renal pelvis and calyces as a result of an obstruction to the outflow of urine. If not corrected in time, it leads ultimately to atrophy of the renal parenchyma.
3. IMMUNE COMPLEX GLOMERULONEPHRITIS-
Which is denoted by IC Nephritis. It is a general term for any unclassifiable glomerular disease in which conspicuous granular deposits of immunoglobulins and complement components are found in Gomeruli antigens are rarely detected.
A general terms for inflammation of kidney, which involves the glomeruli, the tubules or the interstitium, which may be focal or diffuse and acute or chronic.
5. NEPHRITIC SYNDROME-
A syndrome in which haematuria and proteinuria are combined with oedema, glomerular insufficiency and hypertension.
6. NEPHROTIC SYNDROME-
This arises as a result of many different glomerular lesions. A syndrome in which severe proteinuria is combined with hypoalbuminaemia, oedema and frequently hypercholesterolaemia.
The presence of calcareous deposits in the Renal parenchyma which are irregular. Calcified cells may disquanate and lie in the liver.
The presence of one or more calculi in the Collecting system of the kidney. The chemical composition of such Calculi contains calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate.
This stands for inflammation of kidney in which the renal pelvis is involved, usually beginning in tubules and extending to the interstitial tissue, the glomeruli and the renal asculature which may be acute or chronic.
10. TUBULO-INTERSTITIAL NEPHRITIS-
This is for any inflammatory process involving the renal tubules, the interstitium or both, which may be acute and is often associated with chronic or acute renal failure.
