Controversies and Management of Cystinosis

Current Issue of Kidney International has an excellent paper on Cystinosis- from diagnosis to management, a must read for all pediatricians and pediatric nephrologists.
Nephropathic cystinosis is an autosomal recessive metabolic, lifelong disease characterized by lysosomal cystine accumulation throughout the body that commonly presents in infancy with a renal Fanconi syndrome and, if untreated, leads to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) in the later childhood years.
