Abstract:   (3924 Views)
Between 1990-97 two hundered children referred to our department with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) for renal replacement therapy. The ages of these children were 1-14 years (mean 8.14). There was no significant difference in incidence of ESRD between two sexes. We evaluated these children for the causes of ESRD. The most common causes were: Pylonephritis and congenital anomalies of urinary tract (35.5%), glomerular diseases (22.5%) and hereditary kidney diseases (13.5%).
