Abstract

The normal development of the kidney may be affected by several factors, including abnormalities in placental function, resulting in fetal growth restriction, exposure to maternal disease states, including hypertension and diabetes, antenatal steroids, chorioamnionitis, and preterm delivery. After preterm birth, several further insults may occur that may influence nephrogenesis and renal health, including exposure to nephrotoxic medications, postnatal growth failure, and obesity after growth restriction. In this review article, common clinical neonatal scenarios are used to highlight these renal risk factors, and the animal and human evidence on which these risk factors are based are discussed.
