Punit Gupta, Prachi Dubey, Prakash Khunte and G.B. Gupta

Abstract:
A total number of 86 patients of 15-38 year age group were taken, Out of which, 30 were males (34.88%) and 56 were females (65.11%). The mean age of population was 26±11.6 year. These all patients were suffered from sickle cell nephropathy. All patient were subjected to renal function test, Hb electrophoresis and all routine investigations in form of blood glucose urine analysis, lipid profile serum protein 24 h, urine protein, chest X-ray. In this study, it was found that the incidence of infection is more common in female i.e., 70% of total patients. The 81.08% patients having sickle cell nephropathy suffered from urinary tract infection, 66.66% patients of sickle cell nephropathy had pyuria and 13.33% patients show lung infection in form of consolidation and pleural effusion. Among patients suffered from urinary tract infection, 38.23% patients had proteinuria <1 g/24 h and 61.76% patients have proteinuria >1 g/24 h, that proved the glomerular involvement in sickle cell nephropathy. Hypothyroidism seen in 18.18% patients having infection as compared to 11.11% patients without in infection. Thus, this study has shown that sickle cell nephropathy manifestated more common in form of proteinuria and infection (urinary tract and lung infection).
