Nephrosis is non-inflammatory kidney disease.
Nephrosis is any of various forms of kidney disease (nephropathy).

Nephritic syndrome

Nephritis and nephrosis can give rise to nephritic syndrome and nephrotic syndrome respectively.
Nephritic syndrome (or acute nephritic syndrome) is a syndrome comprising signs of nephritis, which is kidney disease involving inflammation.

Chronic kidney disease

chronic renal failurerenal insufficiencyend-stage renal disease
Chronic kidney disease causes the gradual loss of kidney function over time.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a type of kidney disease in which there is gradual loss of kidney function over a period of months or years.

Systemic lupus erythematosus

lupusSLEsystemic lupus
Chronic conditions that can produce nephropathy include systemic lupus erythematosus, diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure (hypertension), which lead to diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephropathy, respectively.
Males tend to have more seizures, kidney disease, serositis (inflammation of tissues lining the lungs and heart), skin problems, and peripheral neuropathy.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug

non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugNSAIDsnonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
The pain medicines which can cause kidney problems include aspirin, acetaminophen, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Side effects depend on the specific drug, but largely include an increased risk of gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeds, heart attack and kidney disease.

Kidney

Kidney disease is an abnormal structure, function or process in the kidney(s).

Renal papillary necrosis

Acute papillary necrosiskidney papillary necrosismedullary necrosis
Specifically, long-term use of the analgesic phenacetin has been linked to renal papillary necrosis (necrotizing papillitis).
Renal papillary necrosis is a form of nephropathy involving the necrosis of the renal papilla.

Paracetamol

The pain medicines which can cause kidney problems include aspirin, acetaminophen, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Kidney damage is seen in rare cases, most commonly in overdose.

Aspirin

acetylsalicylic acidASAbaby aspirin
The pain medicines which can cause kidney problems include aspirin, acetaminophen, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
People with kidney disease, hyperuricemia, or gout should not take aspirin because it inhibits the kidneys' ability to excrete uric acid, thus may exacerbate these conditions.

Lead

Causes of kidney disease include deposition of the Immunoglobulin A antibodies in the glomerulus, administration of analgesics, xanthine oxidase deficiency, toxicity of chemotherapy agents, and long-term exposure to lead or its salts.
Symptoms of lead poisoning include nephropathy, colic-like abdominal pains, and possibly weakness in the fingers, wrists, or ankles.

Onconephrology

Onco-Nephrology
Kidney failure from break down of cancer cells, usually after chemotherapy, is unique to onconephrology.
Onconephrology (from the Ancient Greek onkos meaning bulk, mass, or tumor, nephros meaning kidney, and the suffix -logy, meaning "study of") is a burgeoning new specialty in nephrology that deals with the study of kidney diseases in cancer patients.

Angiopathy

Diabetic nephropathy is a progressive kidney disease caused by angiopathy of the capillaries in the glomeruli.
Damage to nerve cells may cause peripheral neuropathy, and to kidney cells, diabetic nephropathy (Kimmelstiel-Wilson syndrome).

Protein toxicity

Protein toxicity
A high protein diet is a health concern for those suffering from renal disease.

Hypertension

Chronic conditions that can produce nephropathy include systemic lupus erythematosus, diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure (hypertension), which lead to diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive nephropathy, respectively.
Secondary hypertension is more common in preadolescent children, with most cases caused by kidney disease.
