Abstract

Ezrin can be a potent marker of podocyte injury (podocytopathy) and may help in the histological qualification of MCD, DMP and FSGS. The increased permeability of the filtration barrier in steroid-resistant and proteinuric glomerulopathies may be a consequence of subcellular changes in podocyte-associated proteins following decreased expression of ezrin.
