VUKUSICH, Antonio et al. Renal biopsies during the second trimester of pregnancy: Report of two cases. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.8, pp.1072-1075. ISSN 0034-9887.

Kidney biopsies were performed in two women during their 21th and 24th week of pregnancy. The first patient developed an abrupt nephrotic syndrome without hypertension or kidney failure. The pathological study disclosed diffuse podocyte alterations such as those observed in focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis, which had a good response to steroidal treatment. The second patient had a progressive renal failure associated with non-nephrotic proteinuria. The biopsy disclosed a fibrillary glomerulopathy.
