Alport syndrome

Alport syndrome

This is a rare hereditary syndrome characterised by blood in the urine, kidney failure, hearing loss, and decreased vision. In this disease, the gene responsible for the integrity of the outer lining of cells of the kidney, ear and eye is abnormal. Urine examination and microscopic examination of a tissue taken from the kidney will assist a diagnosis. This disease cannot be cured and mostly results in kidney failure. However, controlling blood pressure, dialysis or kidney transplantation are the usual mainstay of treatment to control the progression of disease.
