Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone 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.
