What Are the Symptoms of Children IgA Nephropathy
Most of the symptoms of Children (Pediatric) IgA Nephropathy, or Berger's disease seen in children are similar to those seen in adults, but they are less common or appear in different stages of the disease process.
Children with Berger's disease often experience bouts of excruciating abdominal pain that can mimic appendicitis. The pain can be in the middle of the abdomen or localize to the right lower quadrant.
Gross hematuria can be seen when the patient's urine is smoky or cloudy. The urine is darker than normal because of the red blood cells in the urine.
A strong smell might accompany the dark urine. The hematuria is not constant and occurs only during an active episode of the disease.
Pain in the back or side regions also has been linked to IgA nephropathy.
Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms affecting patients with IgA nephropathy. The fatigue is described as overwhelming and sometimes is associated with a sore throat, headache or slight fever.
Pruritis, or itchiness, commonly is seen in patients with IgA nephropathy.
