Abstract
Introduction: 5% of children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (NS) present steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) with the presence of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Objective: Demonstrate treatment with Prednisone (PDN) and Tacrolimus (FK) in pediatric patients with SRNS for a period of 12 months having greater frequency of complete or partial remissions in relation to the standard treatment with prednisone and Cyclosporine (CyA). Material and Methods: Comparative, multicenter randomized clinical trial was conducted in children with SRNS, approved by Investigation and Ethics Committees; both groups received PDN 60 mg/m2/day, during 1 month continued by 30 mg/m2/ day each/48 h. for 5 months. Group I received CyA 5 mg/kg/day in two doses for 12 month. Through levels 100-200 ng/ml. Group II received FK 0.10 mg/Kg/day in two doses for 12 months. Through levels 5-10 ng/ml. renal biopsy at beginning of treatment and control at 12 months. Cholesterol, albumin and serum creatinine, glomerular filtration rate, proteinuria were determinated in both groups. Results: 20 patients were included, 10 in Group I and 10 in Group II with follow-up of 8 years. Response complete 50% (5) for Group I, 80 % (8) for group II, partial response 10% (1) in group I, no response in 10% (1) of each groups. Secondary hypertension was present in 71.42% for group I and 25% for group II. FSFS were present at 90% biopsies for both groups and no statistical changes of nephrotoxicity. Conclusion: In pediatric patients with SRNS, the treatment FK-PDN had a greater percentage of complete remission than CyA-PDN treatment and lower incidence of hypertension and nephrotoxicity.
