Rare Diseases of Genitourinary System

Numerous rare diseases affect the kidneys and the urinary system, some inadequate to the urinary system itself (e.g., membranous nephropathy), and some part of a condition (e.g., Alport syndrome) that causes additional symptoms in other organ systems. With varying degrees of severity, these diseases can affect different parts of the urinary system (kidney glomerulus, kidney tubules, urinary tract, etc.) causing numerous symptoms.
Several of these diseases occur in the context of inflammation and autoimmune disease (e.g., Goodpasture syndrome). Many rare types of vasculitis can also cause major kidney problems (e.g., Henoch-Schonlein purpura nephritis). The most widely recognized rare condition that involves the genitourinary System is Emphysematous cystitis (EC), a rare infection of the urinary tract that effects in gas production in the bladder. It is more common in diabetic and female patients, and can be associated with more serious complications, including pyelonephritis.
