Summary

The purpose of the study is to test to see if people with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) have a genetic mutation (changes in DNA) so we can learn more about this disease. FSGS is a disease in which scar tissue develops on the parts of the kidneys that filter waste out of the blood. The FSGS in potential participants will be identified through previous kidney biopsy results in medical records and previous urine sample analysis results. The study will also help find people with a genetic mutation who may be interested in participating in future research studies.
