Abstract

ADCK4-related glomerulopathy is an important differential diagnosis in adolescents with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome (SRNS) and/or chronic kidney disease (CKD) of unknown origin. We screened adolescent patients to determine the frequency of ADCK4 mutation and the efficacy of early CoQ10 administration.
