Membranous nephropathy in a renal allograft. Its occurrence in a patient with previous anti-glomerular basement membrane disease.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Glomerulonephritis (GN) in transplant recipients has been attributed to recurrent as well as de novo disease. Although GN is thought to be common in renal allografts, few documented cases of de novo membranous GN in renal allografts have been reported. To our knowledge, this is the second reported case of membranous nephropathy of a renal allograft in a patient whose original disease was anti-glomerular basement membrane disease.
