Children with GFR lower than 80 ml/ min/1.73 m 2 were accepted as chronic renal failure patients. The mean age of the study population was 40 ± 20.8 months (1 - 9 years). In 17 chronic renal failure patients by DTPA clearance, only two of them had serum creatinine greater than 1 mg/dl (11 %). Serum cystatin C levels of these patients were high in 8 patients (47 %). The upper limit of GFR that correspond to 80 ml/min/1.73 m2 in our study was 0.4 mg/dl for creatinine and 1.1 mg/L for cystatin C. A highly significant correlation (r=0.84) was found between serum creatinine and cystatin C. The difference between the correlation coefficients of cystatin C-DTPA (r=-0.50, p<0.001) and creatinine-DTPA (r=-0.52, p<0.0001) was not statistically significant. To compare the diagnostic values Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed and the areas under the curves (AUC) were found similiar. In this study it is concluded that cystatin C can also be used as an indicator of GFR safely in clinical practice especially in those patients with reduced muscle mass.]]> 2002-09-01 Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal 4 11 246 2002-09-01 242 Original Article
