Secondary kidney diseases in children mainly include the Purpura Nephritis, Lupus Nephritis, and Hepatitis B-related Nephritis, etc.
There were also kidney diseases such as Hereditary Nephritis and Congennital Nephritis. The former one has a certain relation with the genetic factor, but some children have the kidney damage until they get to a certain age.
