TYPES OF FIBROSIS: RENAL

Renal fibrosis is a condition in which scarring occurs in the kidney.

Renal scarring results in a progressive loss of renal function, ultimately leading to end-stage renal failure.

Patients with renal fibrosis often require dialysis or kidney transplantation.

Symptoms may include itching, muscle cramps, nausea and vomiting, lack of appetite, swelling in the feet and ankles, urine abnormalities, shortness of breath, or trouble sleeping.
