Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is being increasingly recognized in children, especially prevalent in those who recover from serious illness. The ability to recognize the pathophysiological conditions that predispose to renal parenchymal damage or disorders and the application of preventive measures or institution of ameliorating therapy may lessen the burden of the parenchymal damage leading to CKD. These measures include antenatal immunization, antenatal diagnosis, fetal surgical interventions and postnatal screening procedures for proteinuria, hypertension, dyslipidemia and prevention of obesity - all of which could play a significant role in the prevention of CKD or its progression to end stage renal disease.
