Other genetic glomerular disorders

Michelle N. Rheault, Mark Birkenbach

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A number of rare glomerular disorders have been identified that cannot easily be categorized along with other glomerular diseases. Knowledge of rare glomerular disorders is important for practicing adult and pediatric nephrologists to ensure early diagnosis, treatment, and identification of possible affected family members. This chapter will review the type III collagen glomerulopathies (nailpatella syndrome and collagenofibrotic glomerulopathy), fibronectin glomerulopathy, lecithin/cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) deficiency, MYH9-related disorders, and Pierson syndrome.
