英文摘要: Abstract(#br)The growth-inhibitory effects of courses of daily steroid therapy and of persistent proteinuria were assessed in 125 Indian and African children with nephrotic syndrome (NS) who were followed for an average of 3.9 years (range 0.25–14 years). Among the biopsied patients, 81% of Indians had minimal — change nephropathy and 49% of Africans had membranous nephropathy. The mean height standard deviation score (SDS) in 87 children who had received prednisone for an average of 36 weeks (range 4–250 weeks) was compared with that in 38 patients who had been managed symptomatically. Heights of untreated African children with persistent proteinuria were within the normal range for age, race and sex. The height SDS±SD for 77 Indian children in the prednisonetreated group was −1.06±1.44,...
