By indirect immunofluorescence of kidney biopsies from 7 males from 5 families with Alport syndrome, Jeraj et al.

Two types of Alport syndrome were represented by 3 kindreds: After reaching abnormal values of creatinine, the patient presented with deteriorating renal function three months after a cadaver transplant and the biopsy showed crescent formation, and linear IF deposits. Alport syndrome is also a feature of 2 contiguous gene deletion syndromes involving the COL4A5 gene: Please consider making a donation now and again in the future.

The specificity of the finding was supported by persistence of other glomerular basement membrane antigens, and the findings were compatible with X-linked inheritance. Alport’s syndrome of hereditary nephritis with deafness. Instead, their glomerular basement membranes retain a fetal distribution of the alpha-1 and alpha-2 isoforms of type IV collagen because they fail to switch their alpha-chain use developmentally.

Alport reported a family in which affected individuals showed progressive renal disease with hematuria and deafness. They proposed that Enfermfdad syndrome may be an immunologic disorder. The most common abnormality on electron microscopy, found in 27 of 31 biopsies, was complex replication of the lamina densa of the capillary basement membrane to form a ‘basket weave’ pattern.

Alport syndrome is a genetically heterogeneous disorder, with all forms resulting from mutations in genes encoding type IV collagen, which is a major structural component of the basement membrane.
