Abstract

The incidence of recurrence of nephrotic syndrome-focal segmental glomerulosclerosis NS-FSGS is variable ~30%

The incidence of recurrence is less in African-Americans than in whites and Hispanics

Graft survival rates are decreased in recipients with FSGS, especially if remission of the NS is not achieved in those with recurrence

Although controversial, the use of living donor LD transplants are not contraindicated; however, obligatory heterozygote parental grafts with a podocin mutation should be used with caution

Optimal treatment to induce a remission post-transplant has not been delineated

Pre-transplant and-or prophylactic post-transplant pre-operative plasmapheresis PP for high-risk patients—especially those with recurrence in a previous graft—may be promising

An international multicenter controlled study is required to delineate the optimal approach to prevent and-or treat the recurrence of NS-FSGS
