Hypertension was found in 15 patients on examination with 4 having Glomerulonephritis, 1 with Nephrotic syndrome and 3 having Tubulointerstitial disease.
IgA nephropathy (IgAN, 24.3%), mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis (MsPGN, 10.5%), membranous nephropathy (MN, 12.6%), minimal change disease (MCD, 9.8%), and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS, 4.6%) were the most common pathological types.
