Medication Summary

Treatment of oligomeganephronia is generally supportive and directed at maintaining normal biochemical balance, hemoglobin, and growth.

In addition, ACE inhibitors may be of benefit in slowing progression of renal failure, even if the patient has a normal blood pressure. Although ACE inhibitors are mentioned as a potential treatment, they have not been studied sufficiently to provide dosing guidelines.
