KDIGO 2021 Guideline for the Management of Glomerular Diseases

KDIGO has just announced the publication of the 2021 Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Glomerular Diseases. The guideline is now available online and will be published in the October issue of Supplements to Kidney International with an Executive Summary in the main pages of the journal.

This guideline is the most extensive in KDIGO history, organized into eleven chapters, ten of which cover a specific primary or secondary glomerular disease or group of diseases. The first chapter is an extensive review of general management principles that should be considered for patients with any type of glomerular disease.

The guideline was co-chaired by Brad Rovin, MD (United States), and Jürgen Floege, MD (Germany).
