Classification and external resources
MeSH D009401

Nephrosis refers to a non-inflammatory nephropathy.[1]

It should not be confused with nephritis, where inflammation is implied. However, some sources equate nephrosis with nephropathy.[2]

It can also be used to indicate an emphasis on the renal tubule.[3]

Examples include amyloid nephrosis.
