Answer

Proteinuria and hyponatremia with elevation in BUN and creatinine levels and a slight increase in blood pressure develop early and are not uncommon.

Renal biopsy most often reveals focal segmental glomerulosclerosis or, sometimes, mesangial hyperplasia. Necrotizing glomerulonephritis and minimal histologic changes also are observed.
