Hyperfiltration during early childhood precedes albuminuria in pediatric sickle cell nephropathy

Pediatric sickle cell anemia (SCA) patients have a high prevalence of hyperfiltration and albuminuria during early childhood and adolescence. We tested the hypothesis that hyperfiltration precedes the development of albuminuria in a longitudinal pediatric SCA cohort.
