  • Nephrotic syndrome 19 (NPHS19) [MIM:618178]: A form of nephrotic syndrome, a renal disease clinically characterized by severe proteinuria, resulting in complications such as hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia and edema. Kidney biopsies show non-specific histologic changes such as focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and diffuse mesangial proliferation. Some affected individuals have an inherited steroid-resistant form that progresses to end-stage renal failure. NPHS19 is an autosomal recessive, steroid-resistant form with onset in the first or second decade of life, resulting in chronic kidney disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:30179222, ECO:0000269 PubMed:30910934}. Note=The disease may be caused by variants affecting the gene represented in this entry.
