It is a great honor to serve as the Guest Editor for this Special Issue of Children, entitled “Advances in Pediatric Renal Diseases”. Renal diseases in childhood encompass a very wide range of conditions that significantly impact morbidity and mortality later in life. In particular, chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health concern, currently affecting up to 10–15% of the general population. It is a complex, progressive chronic condition that represents a major risk factor not only for end-stage kidney disease but also for cardiovascular disease and other comorbidities.
Given the pathogenic role of the kidney in several biological processes and its involvement in various diseases with growing prevalence worldwide (e.g., diabetes, obesity), there is a need for additional investigation in the field of pediatric renal diseases.
The goal of this Special Issue is to discuss any aspects of pediatric renal diseases to increase our understanding of these conditions, by also sharing knowledge about incompletely understood and controversial areas in this field.
We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to improve our understanding in this challenging field. As the title implies, new developments, unconventional, or inspirational contributions are also very encouraged.
We look forward to receiving your contributions
Dr. Anna Di Sessa
