Word or term in question:

maladie lamelle basale renale


Une biopsie adéquate a été obtenue indicant la présence de maladie lamelle basale renale.

I am not familiar with this condition, and I get the feeling that the English equivalent is not literal. Anyone know where I can find this?

My comment:

lamelle basale is the basal membrane so this is my best guess.

My references:

Ref "Basic Pathology" by Robbins and Angell. Published 1971 by W B Saunders, Philadelphia. You could try any textbook of Pathology.

an illness relating to the basal renal lamina

My comment:

In the kidney, the basal lamina acts as a molecular filter. ... The basal lamina provides support to the overlying epithelium, limits contact between epithelial cells and the other cell types in the tissue and acts as a filter allowing only water and small molecules to pass through.

ad TBMD / TBMN (!) "La maladie de la membrane basale mince (TBMD, également connue sous le nom d'hématurie familiale bénigne et de néphropathie de la membrane basale mince ou TBMN) est, avec la néphropathie à IgA , la cause la plus fréquente d' hématurie sans autres symptômes. La seule constatation anormale dans cette maladie est un amincissement de la membrane basale des glomérules dans les reins. Sa particularité réside importance dans le fait qu'il a un bénin pronostic , [1] avec les patients en maintenant une normale fonction rénale tout au long de leur vie." cf
