abnormal glomerular filtration barrier function  
anomaly in the function of the highly specialized blood filtration interface that displays a high conductance to small and midsized solutes in plasma but retains relative impermeability to macromolecules; its integrity is maintained by physicochemical and signalling interplay among its three core constituents -- the fenestrated endothelium of the glomerular capillaries, the glomerular basement membrane, and the filtration slits of the visceral epithelial cell (podocyte); the barrier permits the passage of water, ions, and small molecules from the bloodstream into the Bowman's space and prevents the loss of large and/or negatively charged proteins (e.g. serum albumin) from blood into urine
abnormal renal glomerular filtration rate +   

Exact Synonyms: abnormal GFB permeability
