Clinical Information:
A kidney biopsy will perform  to evaluate any of the following conditions:
1. Hematuria: blood in the urine, which can be a sign of kidney disease or other urinary problems.
2. Albuminuria: condition in which the urine has more-than-normal amounts of a protein called albumin.  Albuminuria may be a sign of kidney disease.
Changes in kidney function, which can cause the buildup of waste products in the blood.
The kidney tissue sample can show inflammation, scarring, infection, or unusual deposits of a protein called immunoglobulin. A biopsy can also help explain why a transplanted kidney is not working properly.
