The issue of vaccination for children with nephrotic syndrome has not yet been unified. Because of facing the dilemma: on the one hand, vaccination may cause relapse or exacerbation (especially for children with pathological diagnosis of lesions); on the other hand is to give up the children with nephrotic syndrome or excessive delay vaccination, suffer from some serious (and fatal) increased risk of infectious disease, and these diseases should be vaccinated by effective prevention!
Our current approach is: 1 in nephrotic syndrome in remission (or "cured") may consider vaccination after half a year; 2 in the application of large dose of hormone and (or) the use of immunosuppressive agents, should avoid vaccination; 3 to avoid the live vaccine (such as: BCG, measles and polio vaccine). Just listed soon the vaccine (application experience is not enough), it is best not vaccinated. It is important to note that in nephrotic syndrome (or cure steroid for 1 years or more), can according to the normal procedures for vaccination, but the same as normal children, there will be some possible such as fever, diarrhea and other side effects, according to the conventional treatment is. At the same time, there may be a risk of recurrence of induced nephropathy.
