Clinical Practice Session

Potpourri of Infection-Related Glomerular Diseases

November 04, 2022 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: W304, Orange County Convention Center‚ West Building

Session Description

Glomerular injury can occur in association with a variety of bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections, leading to a wide spectrum of glomerular pathology. Infection-related glomerular diseases are seen in increasing frequency in clinical practice but are still underrecognized. Familiarity with these glomerular entities is paramount in early diagnosis and timely management. This session reviews the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and management of various glomerular diseases associated with concurrent acute, subacute, or chronic bacterial and viral infections.

Support is provided by an educational grant from Travere Therapeutics, Inc.
