Alport Syndrome ATC 2008

Alport Syndrome accounts for approximately 1% of kidney transplants. It is a hereditary cause of kidney failure associated with hearing loss, more often affecting males than females. Loss of kidney function is attributed to collagen defects in the glomerular basement membrane. Formation of antibody reactive to normal collagen in the transplanted kidney may increase the risk of graft loss.
