Does growth hormone therapy induce IgA nephropathy?



Does growth hormone therapy induce IgA nephropathy?



Pediatric Nephrology 20(12): 1821-1822



We report the cases of two patients who developed acute renal failure following multiple wasp stings. Both patients required dialysis and recovered within 4 weeks. The kidney biopsy from one patient showed acute tubular necrosis with interstitial nephritis.
