Abstract

The evaluation and management of children with HIV nephropathy provide a great challenge to the pediatric nephrologist caring for patients with this tragic illness, of which the nephropathy is only part of their problem and extends beyond the patient to the family and all of the supportive team involved. Care decisions should be based on a multi-disciplinary approach in which the infectious disease component is included. There are many areas that require a better understanding, particularly the pathogenesis of HIV nephropathy and the approach to treatment of the nephropathy with specific drugs. Early identification of children affected with this condition and an aggressive approach to management seem essential to the improvement of the outcome of these patients.
