Congenital Disorders

Congenital disorders are conditions that are present at birth and affect the structure or function of the kidneys or the urinary system. These disorders can vary in severity and can impact kidney development, filtration, fluid balance, or other aspects of renal function.

Some common congenital kidney disorders include:

Polycystic kidney disease (PKD): PKD is characterized by the formation of fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys, which can gradually enlarge and impair kidney function over time.

Congenital nephrotic syndrome: This condition involves developmental abnormalities in the filtration units of the kidneys (glomeruli), leading to excessive protein loss in the urine and resulting in swelling and other complications.

Congenital obstructive uropathy: This refers to structural abnormalities that obstruct the normal flow of urine, such as ureteropelvic junction obstruction or posterior urethral valves.

Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR): VUR occurs when urine flows backward from the bladder to the kidneys due to a defect in the valve-like mechanism that normally prevents this reflux. It can increase the risk of urinary tract infections and kidney damage.

The treatment options for congenital kidney disorders depend on the specific disorder, its severity, the age of the Patient, and his overall health.

Some common approaches are:

  • Medications
  • Surgical interventions
  • Supportive care
  • Dialysis
  • Kidney transplantation.
