Membranous glomerulopathy with superimposed pauci-immune necrotizing crescentic glomerulonephritis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We describe a 61-year-old woman with acute kidney injury, nephrotic range proteinuria and hematuria. Kidney biopsy showed membranous glomerulopathy (MG) with superimposed pauci-immune necrotizing crescentic glomerulonephritis (PNCGN). Coexistent MG and PNCGN is a rare occurrence. The diagnosis of such an exceptionally rare combination relies on the combination of renal biopsy findings and serologic testing. We also review previous reported cases and discuss possible pathogenesis of this rare dual glomerulopathy. © 2012 The Author.
