AYASREH FIERRO, Nadia et al. A review on autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease. Nefrología (Madr.) [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.3, pp.235-243. ISSN 1989-2284.

In recent years there has been a reclassification of hereditary tubulointerstitial renal diseases. The old concepts of nephronoptisis or medullary cystic disease have been reordered based on the discovery of new genes. The 2015 KDIGO guidelines proposed a unification of terminology, diagnostic criteria and monitoring. So far 4 genes causing autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease have been described: MUC1, UMOD, HNF1B and REN. Although the mutation in each of them causes distinctive features in how they present, all have in common the progressive tubulointerstitial damage and renal fibrosis. In this article, we present a review of the guidelines and the literature, and some practical recommendations for dealing with this disease.

Keywords : Autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease; Uromodulin; Mucin-1; Hepatocyte nuclear factor beta; Renin; Hereditary kidney disease.
