What is kidney biopsy?

Kidney biopsy is a test that can help to know well about the pathological changes of kidney. In medicine, kidney biopsy is done by inserting a long needle through the back to remove a sample of kidney tissues. This kidney tissue will be sent to lab. By analyzing this sample under the microscope, we can see which part of kidney is damaged and how serious the kidney damages are.

Kidney biopsy can be done to check for kidney problem, but it is only recommended for kidney disease patients whose illness progresses quickly suddenly or whose illness can not be brought under control after trying to take various kinds of medicines. Under such a condition, kidney biopsy plays an important part for the following diagnosis and treatment.

Kidney biopsy is necessary in the diagnosis of IgA Nephropathy. IgA Nephropathy is an illness that may cause no symptoms in early stage.

For patients with IgA Nephropathy, through kidney biopsy, we can detect lots of immune complexes, mainly IgA immune complexes, in mesangial area through immunofluorescence technique. And with light microscope, we can find there is proliferative mesangial area. We can find lots of pathological changes by analyzing kidney tissues removed out of the body through kidney biopsy and according to this, we can know whether the patient is affected by IgA Nephropathy.

The diagnosis of IgA Nephropathy is always based on many medical tests, so if someone is suspected to have this problem, he needs to go to hospital to have tests as soon as possible, so as to avoid delaying illness condition.
