Nephrotic syndrome is a problem where too much protein called albumin is released from the body into the urine.
Idiopathic nephrotic syndrome INS is one of the most common renal diseases found in the paediatric population and is associated with significant complications, including infection and thrombosis. A high proportion of children enter sustained remission before adulthood, and therapy must therefore mitigate the childhood complications, while minimising the long-term risk to health. Here we address the main complications of INS and summarise the available evidence and guidance to aid the clinician in determining the appropriate treatment for children with INS under their care. Additionally, we highlight areas where no consensus regarding appropriate management has been reached. In this review, we detail the reasons why routine prophylactic antimicrobial and antithrombotic therapy are not warranted in INS and emphasise the conservative management of oedema.
Childhood Nephrotic Syndrome
Blood enters your kidneys through your renal arteries. Your kidneys remove excess fluid and waste material from your blood through units called nephrons. Each nephron contains a filter glomerulus that has a network of tiny blood vessels called capillaries. The glomeruli filter waste products and substances your body needs — such as sodium, phosphorus and potassium — which then pass through tiny tubules. The substances your body needs are reabsorbed into your bloodstream. The waste products flow through the ureters — the tubes that lead to the bladder. Glomerulonephritis gloe-mer-u-low-nuh-FRY-tis is inflammation of the tiny filters in your kidneys glomeruli.

Results Asymptomatic urinary abnormalities was the most common clinical diagnosis
When the kidneys are damaged, the protein albumin, normally found in the blood, will leak into the urine. Proteins are large, complex molecules that perform a number of important functions in the body. A health care provider may refer a child with nephrotic syndrome to a nephrologist—a doctor who specializes in treating kidney disease.
Nephrotic Syndrome usually presents with the classic triad of oedema, proteinuria and hypoalbuminaemia. Oedema can be non-dependant eg periorbital. Consider other causes of generalised oedema eg liver disease, congestive cardiac failure and protein losing enteropathy. If the child is profoundly ill or appears to have sepsis treat accordingly see Sepsis.
