Fourteen biopsies were performed postpartum, mean time 4.8 months (1-12), the indication for renal biopsy was proteinuria in 100% of patients with two patients with nephrotic syndrome, renal failure was present in 7 patients and hematuria in 6 patients. 4 patients had extrarenal signs (arthralgia in 2 patients and RAYNAUD's syndrome in 2 patients) absence of extrarenal signs in the rest of the patients. Diuresis was retained in 12 patients and anuria in 2 patients. The diagnosis was segmental and focal hyalinosis (HSF) in 5 patients or 35.7%, extramembranous glomerulonephritis in 2 patients or 14.3%, chronic glomerulonephritis in 2 patients or 14.3%, acute glomerulonephritis in 1 patient or 7.14%, membrano-proliferative glomerulonephritis in 1 patient or 7.14%, minimal glomerular lesion in 1 patient 7.14%, vasculitis in a patient 7.14%, 1 patient with shepherd's disease or 7.14%.
The evolution was marked by complete remission in 5 patients, partial remission in 2 patients, 5 patients progressed to end-stage chronic renal failure with hemodialysis, one patient in chronic renal failure with stationary renal function, one patient treatment in progress.
