What other things do we consider when we evaluate your genitourinary impairment under specific listings?

  1. Chronic hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis (106.02A). A report from an acceptable medical source describing the chronic renal disease and the need for ongoing dialysis is sufficient to satisfy the requirements in 106.02A.
  2. Kidney transplantation (106.02B). If you have undergone kidney transplantation, we will consider you to be disabled for 12 months following the surgery because, during the first year, there is a greater likelihood of rejection of the organ and recurrent infection. After the first year posttransplantation, we will base our continuing disability evaluation on your residual impairment(s). We will include absence of symptoms, signs, and laboratory findings indicative of kidney dysfunction in our consideration of whether medical improvement (as defined in §§404.1594(b)(1) and (c)(1) and 416.994a, as appropriate) has occurred. We will consider the:

    a. Occurrence of rejection episodes.

    b. Side effects of immunosuppressants, including corticosteroids.

    c. Frequency of any renal infections.

    d. Presence of systemic complications such as other infections, neuropathy, or deterioration of other organ systems.

  3. Nephrotic syndrome (106.06). The longitudinal clinical record should include a description of prescribed therapy, response to therapy, and any side effects of therapy. In order for your nephrotic syndrome to meet 106.06A or B, the medical evidence must document that you have the appropriate laboratory findings required by these listings and that your anasarca has persisted for at least 3 months despite prescribed therapy. However, we will not delay adjudication if we can make a fully favorable determination or decision based on the evidence in your case record. We may also evaluate complications of your nephrotic syndrome, such as orthostatic hypotension, recurrent infections, or venous thromboses, under the appropriate listing for the resultant impairment.
  4. Congenital genitourinary impairments (106.07)
    1. Each of the listings in 106.07 requires a longitudinal clinical record showing that at least three events have occurred within a consecutive 12 month period with intervening periods of improvement. Events include urologic surgical procedures, hospitalizations, and treatment with parenteral antibiotics. To meet the requirements of these listings, there must be at least 1 month (that is, 30 days) between the events in order to ensure that we are evaluating separate episodes.
    2. Diagnostic cystoscopy does not satisfy the requirement for repeated urologic surgical procedures in 106.07A.
    3. In 106.07B, systemic infection means an infection requiring an initial course of parenterally administered antibiotics occurring at least once every 4 months or at least 3 times a year.
    4. In 106.07C, appropriate laboratory and clinical evidence document electrolyte disturbance. Hospitalizations are inpatient hospitalizations for 24 hours or more.

What does the term "persistent" mean in these listings?

Persistent means that the longitudinal clinical record shows that, with few exceptions, the required finding(s) has been at, or is expected to be at, the level specified in the listing for a continuous period of at least 12 months.

Congenital genitourinary impairments

(see 106.00E4) resulting in one of the following:

  3. Hospitalization (see 106.00E4d) for episodes of electrolyte disturbance, occurring at least 3 times in a consecutive 12-month period.

Impairment of renal function

Due to any chronic renal disease that has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of at least 12 months. With:

  1. Chronic hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis (see 106.00E1).
  2. OR

  3. Kidney transplantation. Consider under a disability for 12 months following surgery; thereafter, evaluate the residual impairment (see 106.00E2).
  4. OR

  5. Persistent elevation of serum creatinine to 3 mg per deciliter (dL) 100 ml) or greater, over at least 3 months.


  6. Reduction of creatinine clearance to 30 ml per minute (43 liters/24 hours) per 1.73 m2 of body surface area over at least 3 months.
