Objective: To evaluate the outcome of pediatric patients treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) performed by experienced pediatric urologists. Material & Method: A retrospective study of children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) by peritoneal dialysis (PD) in Division of Nephrology Department of Child Health, Faculty of Medicine Airlangga University, Soetomo Hospital, Surabaya, from January 2003 to February 2012 was conducted. Children with acute kidney injury treated by PD were excluded.Data reviewed were age, sex, primary renal disease, age at start of CAPD, duration of CAPD, outcome and cause of death. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data.Results: Twenty seven cases of children with CAPD within 9-year period were included. Most patients were 11-15 years old with 62,9% being male. Chronic glomerulonephritis and nephrotic syndrome were the main primary renal diseases. Fifteen (55,6%) patients had peritonitis. The longest duration on CAPD was 53 months. Outcome of 27 children was as follows, 11 patients died (40,8%), 8 patients survived (29,6%), and another 8 were lost to follow-up (29,6%). All (100%) patients had cardiovascular abnormalities as cause of death. Conclusion: The outcome and mortality rate of children with CAPD remain unfavourable. This is a challenge still to be overcomed. Keywords: Continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, children, outcome.

Lowe syndrome (the oculocerebrorenal syndrome of Lowe, OCRL) is a multisystem disorder characterized by anomalies affecting the eyes, nervous system and kidneys.1-3 The disorder was first recognized by Lowe et al. in 1952, and described as a unique syndrome with organic aciduria, decreased renal ammonia production, hydrophthalmos, and mental retardation. In 1954, renal Fanconi syndrome was recognized as being associated with Lowe syndrome and in 1965, a recessive X-linked pattern of inheritance was determined.2,4 Lowe syndrome is a very rare disease, with an estimated prevalence in the general population of 1 in 500,000. According to the Lowe Syndrome Association (LSA) in the USA, the estimated prevalence is between 1 and 10 affected males in 1,000,000 people, with 190 living in the year 2000. The Italian Association of Lowe Syndrome estimated that there were 34 Lowe syndrome patients (33 boys and one girl) living in Italy in the year 2005.2,4,5 It almost exclusively affects males.6 Physicians may not be familiar with Lowe syndrome due to its rarity.4

Background Acute kidney injury (AKI) is still diagnosed by measuring the estimated creatinine clearance (eCCl), despite the fact that it may not change until 50% or more of kidney function has been lost. AKI after cardiac surgery is related to prolonged intensive care, decreased quality of life, and increased long term mortality. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) represents an early biomarker of AKI, which may be useful for assessing AKI in cardiac patients.Objective To determine the validity of urinary and plasma NGAL as biomarkers for AKI in children after cardiac surgery.Methods Subjects were children who underwent cardiac surgery in Dr. Soetomo Hospital, Surabaya, Indonesia from August 2013 to January 2014. Serial urine and blood samples were analyzed for NGAL before surgery, as well as at 2h, 4h, 12h, and 24h after surgery. The AKI was established based on pRIFLE criteria. Estimated creatinine clearance (eCCl) was calculated from the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), according to age by the traditional Schwartz formula. Serum creatinine was assayed by the Jaffe method before surgery, as well as at 12h, 24h, 48h, and 72h after surgery.Results Of 20 subjects, 5 developed AKI. Urinary and plasma NGAL increased markedly at 2h postoperatively, as compared to eGFR which showed a rise at 12-48 h after cardiac surgery. Analysis of 2h post-operative urinary NGAL at a cut off value of 11.270ng/mL yielded an area under the curve (AUC) of 1.00 (95%CI 2.63 to 12.13), with sensitivity and specificity of 100% each for AKI. In addition, 2h post-operative plasma NGAL at a cut off value of 8.385 ng/mL yielded an AUC of 1.00 (95%CI 3.71 to 12.15) with sensitivity and specificity of 100% each for AKI.Conclusion Urinary and plasma NGAL are valid as early biomarkers for AKI in children after cardiac surgery.

Background Hypertensive crisis occurs in 1-4% of the hypertensive pediatric population, mostly due to acute glomerulonephritis (AGN). Some factors have been suggested to affect blood pressure (BP) in children, such as age, sex, race/ethnicity, obesity, and socioeconomic status, but little is known for risk factors for hypertensive crisis in AGN.Objective To analyze the risk factors for hypertensive crisis in children with AGN.Methods Retrospectively, we studied possible risk factors for hypertensive crisis in children with AGN at Dr. Soetomo Hospital from 2007 to 2011. Hypertensive crisis was defined as systolic BP ≥180 mmHg or diastolic BP ≥120 mmHg (for children ≥ 6 years of age); and systolic and/or diastolic BP >50% above the 95th percentile (for children aged <6 years). We evaluated the demographic and clinical characteristics as potential risk factors. Statistical analysis was done with Chi-square, Fisher’s exact, and logistic regression tests. Variables with P <0.25 in the univariable analysis were further analyzed by the multivariable logistic regression model. A P value of < 0.05 was considered statistically significant.Results There were 101 children included (mean age 9.7 (SD 2.17) years), with a male-to-female ratio of 2.7:1. Hypertensive crisis occurred in 42 (41.6%) children, of whom 8 had hypertensive urgency and 34 had hypertensive emergency. Proteinuria was seen in 53 children with AGN (52.5%) and was the significant risk factor for hypertensive crisis in our subjects (OR=2.75; 95%CI 1.16 to 6.52; P=0.021). Gender, clinical profiles, ethnicity, nutritional status, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) were not significant risk factors for hypertensive crisis.Conclusion Proteinuria is the significant risk factor for hypertensive crisis in children with AGN.

Gitelman syndrome is a rare, autosomal recessive, renal tubular salt wasting disorder characterized by hypokalemia, and metabolic alkalosis in combination with significant hypomagnesemia and hypocalciuria.1,2 The prevalence is estimated to be 1 in 40,000 individuals. The condition affects both males and females of all ethnic backgrounds. The prevalence of heterozygotes is approximately 1% in Caucasian populations.2,3In the majority of cases, symptoms do not appear before the age of six years and the disease is usually diagnosed during adolescence or adulthood. Symptoms, such as transient episodes of muscle weakness and tetany, sometimes accompanied by abdominal pain, vomiting and fever, are often seen in Gitelman syndrome patients. Paresthesias, especially in the face, frequently occur. Remarkably, some patients are completely asymptomatic except for the appearance of chondrocalcinosis at adult age that causes swelling, local heat, and tenderness over the affected joints. Blood pressure is lower than that in the general population. Sudden cardiac arrest has been reported occasionally. In general, growth is normal but can be delayed in those Gitelman syndrome patients with severe hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia.2,4

Background Persistent proteinuria (microalbuminuria) has been reported to be a precursor of HIV-related renal disease. Screening allows for early management in order to prevent the progression of renal disease and decrease morbidity and mortality associated with chronic kidney disease in HIV. Several studies have been done on renal manifestation in HIV-infected children from American and African regions, but similar studies from Asia are lacking.Objective To determine the prevalence of persistent proteinuria in HIV-positive children on antiretroviral therapy (ARV) in Dr. Soetomo Hospital, Surabaya.Methods A cross-sectional study on children with HIV and treated with  highly active antiretroviral therapy (HARRT) was done from August 2014 to February 2015. Microalbuminuria was measured by the ratio of urine albumin to creatinine (ACR), while proteinuria was measured by dipstick. Measurements were performed 3 times in 4-8 weeks. All subjects underwent complete evaluation of blood tests, serum creatinine, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), CD4 counts, and urinalysis. Data were analyzed using Chi-square and logistic regression tests.Results Of 38 children on HARRT enrolled in this study, 2 subjects developed acute kidney injury (AKI), 4 subjects were suspected to have urinary tract infection (UTI), and 1 subject was suspected to have urinary tract stones. The prevalence of persistent microalbuminuria was 2.6%. There was no correlation between immunological status, WHO clinical stage, or duration of ARV and the incidence of persistent proteinuria (P>0.05).Conclusion The prevalence of persistent proteinuria is  lower in younger HIV-infected children at a non-advanced stage and HIV-infected children with normal immunological status who are on HAART. We provide baseline data on the renal conditions of HIV-infected children in the era of HAART, before tenovofir is  increasingly used as an antiretroviral therapy regimen in Indonesia.

Background Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the secondleading cause of infection in children, following respiratorytract infections. Repeat urine cultures after antibiotic treatmentare routinely obtained in clinical practice to verify proof ofbacteriologic cure. The American Academy of Pediatrics doesnot recommended repeat cultures, due to increased cost anddiscomfort to patients.Objective To determine the frequency of positive repeat urinecultures after 3 days of antibiotics in children 'With UTIs.Methods We conducted a retrospective study on childrenwith UTIs who visited the Division of Pediatric Nephrology,Department of Child Health at Dr. Soetomo Hospital, Surabayafrom January 2006 to December 2011. Results of repeat urinecultures were obtained after 3 days of antibiotic treatment.Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data.Results Of the 779 pediatric UTI cases, repeat urine cultureswere performed in 264 (33.9%) cases. Of the 264 patients whocomprised our study, there were similar numbers of girls and boys(50.4% vs. 49.6%, respectively). The mean age of patients was43.9 (SD 1.59) months and 35.5% of subjects were aged under 1year. In the initial urine cultures of our subjects, Escherichia coliwas the most common organism found, v,ith 92 cases (34.8%),compared to 58 cases (21.9%) of Klebsiella pneumoniae and 29cases (10.9%) of Pseudom.onas aeruginosa. Repeat urine culturesshowed no bacterial growth in 168 cases (63.6%).Conclusion Mostly negative repeat urine cultures v,ill probablyobviate the need of this test in daily routine practice.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is not uncommon issue in children. CKD is the abnormality of structure or function of the kidney that occurs for more than 3 months. Progresivity of CKD characterized by the presence of longitudinal decline in Glomerulus Filtration Rate (GFR), proteinuria and hypertension. One of the recommendations of the prevention of nutritional supplementation in CKD by administering oral Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA). Recently, there has been no research to figure the effects of the of BCAA on children with CKD stage 2-4. Randomized pre-post test controlled trial study was conducted in Nephrology pediatric outpatient clinic Dr. Soetomo hospital with CKD stage 2-4, divided into 2 groups, the BCAA and placebo, followed for 8 weeks to be evaluated for GFR, albumin, proteinuria, blood pressure and nutritional status. Sixteen children with CKD stage 2-4 were enrolled in this study, 71.4% of patients were boys. The mean age was 12.5 (SD 2.90) years. CKD stage 2 about 50% (p=0,767). Nephrotic syndrome was the most common underlying cause of CKD (p=0,149). Moderate malnutrition was about 50% (p=1,000) and short stature was 64.28% (p=1.000). In BCAA group there was decrease of GFR -5.08±7,13 (p=0.055), increase of albumin serum 0.20±0.23 (p=0,062), decrease of delta systole -11,57±15.08 (p=0,565) and diastole -4,85±16.25 (p=0,708), weight loss -0.07±1.01 (p=0.828), an increase of height 0.14±0.24 (p=0,771), and a decrease in BMI -0.03±0.74 (p=0,389). The conclusion in this study is Branched chain amino acid (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) supplementation did not provide significant effect in inhibiting progresivity of CKD stage 2-4 in children and improvement of nutritional status.
