A. Selective proteinuria.
C. Focal segmental glonurulosclerosil.
D. Low serum complement level.
The condition shown in the picture above represents hyaline cast.
- It is a case of nephrotic syndrome due to minimal change disease (MCD).
- MCD is the most common cause of nephrotic syndrome in children*
- Microscopic findings of urine in MCD
- Principally albumin (which is a low molecular weight protein)
a High molecular weight proteins are seen in minimal amounts.
a This type of proteinuria is known as selective proteinuria.
- WBC → Absent
- RBC→ Absent
- hyaline cast → can be seeno
- Focal segmental Glomeruloclerosis can also cause nephrotic syndrome but the urine examination in these patients will reveal protein, WBC’s and RBC’s
