We complain about the quality of kidney research but is there any meat there? Join us this week as we look at Chatzimanouil’s recent examination of the nephrology literature.
To most Nephrologists, Nephronophthisis (NPH) is considered to be a rare autosomal recessive paediatric disease. However, this article by Snoek et al challenges that belief, by examining the prevalence of mutations that cause NPH, in adults with end stage renal disease (ESRD). Read our NephJC summary below and come along to our Twitter Journal Club discussion to find out whether you might consider a diagnosis of NPH, next time you see that patient carrying a label of ‘ESRD, cause unknown’.
