Kidney Biopsy

Kidney_Biopsy

A kidney biopsy involves taking a few tiny pieces (samples) – of your kidney to look at under the microscope. Special microscopes make it possible to see the kidney tissue in great detail using special techniques.

Few examples when patients need a kidney biopsy include:

  • Blood in the urine (hematuria) or
  • Protein in the urine (proteinuria)
  • Abnormal blood test results
  • Acute or chronic kidney disease with no clear cause
  • Nephrotic syndrome and
  • Glomerular disease (which happens when the filtering units of the kidney are damaged)
  • Transplanted kidney dysfunction
  • Allergic reaction in kidney
  • Prognostication
