Renal biopsy is the most common diagnostic method for renal disease. It is not only used for the pathological diagnosis of native kidney or transplanted kidney, but also helps to further understand the occurrence, development and prognosis of the disease, and provide more information for guiding the treatment and prognosis. Under what conditions kidney biopsy is necessary?
1. Consider renal lesions caused by diffuse lesions, such as glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, kidney damage caused by systemic diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus, diabetes, nodular arteritis, amyloidosis, etc.
2. Unexplained hematuria, when excluded from non glomerular hematuria, renal biopsy should be carried out to confirm the diagnosis.
3. Unexplained and continuous proteinuria.
4. Renal insufficiency patients, when there is difficulty in the diagnosis and determination of the treatment program, especially acute onset, suspected rapid progressive nephritis, should have early renal biopsy to confirm the diagnosis, and formulate the treatment plan.
5. When it is suspected of chronic pyelonephritis, but it can not rule out chronic nephritis, and there is no sufficient evidence for differential diagnosis.
6. Suspicious graft rejection after renal transplantation, or rejection, while treatment is ineffective, or suspected of recurrence of primary kidney disease, renal biopsy should be performed.
Others, such as unexplained hypertension, condition and treatment require continuous renal biopsy to correct the diagnosis and revise the treatment protocol.
