Brief Summary:
Elastography is a emerging imaging technique that has demonstrated high reliability in the assessment of tissues stiffness and quantification of fibrosis particularly in adult's livers. This ultrasound exploration has no secondary effects. There is no study published in the pediatric population concerning the role of ultrasound elastrography in kidney. The aim of this study is to look for a correlation between the elastography's results and the kidney fibrosis on children who have to undergo a renal biopsy. Elastography may play a potential diagnostic and/or prognostic role in the management of these patients which would limit invasive biopsy procedures.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. the elastography [ Time Frame: 30 months ]
    to study a link enters the elasticity of the kidney estimated by the élastographie and the classification of the renal fibrosis estimated and quantified from the histology by draining renal biopsy.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The dosage of the créatininémie [ Time Frame: 30 months ]
  2. the debit of filtration glomérulaire at the child [ Time Frame: 30 MONTHS ]
