Nephrotic syndrome is a disorder where the kidneys have been damaged, causing them to leak protein from the blood into the urine.

Nephrology is the branch of internal medicine dealing with the study of the function and diseases of the kidney. The word nephrology is derived from the Greek word nephros, which means "kidney", and the suffix -ology, or "study of".
