Focal sclerosing glomerulonephritis in a child with Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome

Child Nephrol Urol. 1990;10(2):109-11.


We report a 6-year-old white male with Laurence-Moon-Biedl syndrome and focal sclerosing glomerulonephritis (FSGN). To our knowledge, FSGN has not been reported previously in patients with this syndrome. We wish to alert the clinician to the wide variety of renal abnormalities that can be seen in patients with this rare, autosomal recessive disorder.
