Explaining loin-pain related issues

 

Loin pain related issues and other issues that necessitate an evaluation for renal auto transplant include:

  • Primary Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome
  • Nutcracker Syndrome
  • Kidney stones with chronic flank pain
  • Any other rare renal pain syndrome
  • Renal Artery Aneurysms
  • Ureteral Injury/Dysfunction

Loin pain hematuria syndrome (LPHS) is a rare disorder that may be caused by Primary Loin Pain Hematuria Syndrome and/or Nutcracker Syndrome, kidney stones and various other kidney diseases. Patients with LPHS have persistent and reoccurring loin pain on one or both sides of their body, and blood in their urine. The pain can range from hours to constant and can include dysuria, vomiting and low-grade fever.
