With much regret we report that on 7 January 2019 Dr. Horacio Repetto, a founding member and key figure in the development of our society ALANEPE, passed away.
After completing his fellowship in Pediatric Nephrology at University of Chicago, Dr. Repetto returned to his beloved Argentina, where he established the pediatric nephrology service at Hospital Nacional Alejandro Posadas, one of the most important hospitals in the country. In Argentina he is recognized as one of the pioneers and leaders of the specialty. He was a founding member of ALANEPE and IPNA councilor for 6 years. Dr. Repetto authored numerous scientific articles published in high-impact journals and participated in the training of many of the Latin American pediatric nephrologists. We will remember him for his passion, magisterial lectures in subjects such as renal physiology, tubulopathies, fluids and electrolytes, but above all, we will remember him for his humbleness , kindness and humaneness.
