Infections such as HIV, parvovirus and hepatitis B

Medications or toxins

Chronic systemic diseases and other chronic kidney diseases such as sickle cell nephropathy

Primary FSGS can affect people of all ages. It is an important cause of kidney problems in children. In adults, it is also increasingly seen. It occurs more frequently in black individuals compared to whites and is more frequent in males.
