What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at NYU Langone’s Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital offer expert care for children and adolescents with glomerulonephritis, a condition that causes inflammation in the kidneys. This condition may occur suddenly, after a bacterial infection. It can also develop over time due to an autoimmune condition, in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues in the body.

Our doctors perform a series of tests to identify the cause and extent of your child’s condition. Treatment focuses on eliminating inflammation and preventing kidney damage and complications, such as high blood pressure.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Depending on the cause of your child’s condition, treatment may include medication to suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation. Children with severe glomerulonephritis receive treatment in the hospital to remove autoantibodies and improve kidney function.
