Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, Foothills Medical Center, 1403 29 St NW, Calgary, AB, T2N 2T9, Canada.

Background: Anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease is characterized by circulating IgG glomerular basement membrane antibodies and is clinically expressed as a rapidly progressive crescentic glomerulonephritis (GN), with 30-60% of patients also developing pulmonary hemorrhage. Classically, the renal biopsy shows glomerular crescent formation, bright linear staining of glomerular basement membranes (GBM) for IgG on direct immunofluorescence (IF), and the serologic presence of circulating anti-GBM antibodies. Recently, patients with linear IgG IF staining, undetectable circulating anti-GBM antibodies and glomerular changes atypical for anti-GBM disease have been described as "atypical anti-GBM disease", with a distinctly more benign clinical course than typical anti-GBM disease.

Standardized classification and reporting of glomerulonephritis.

Nephrol Dial Transplant 2019 02;34(2):193-199

Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, USA.

A kidney biopsy is done to determine the etiology of the glomerulonephritis (GN) and the severity of the lesion, to identify whether other lesions, related to or not related to the GN, are present on the kidney biopsy and finally to ascertain the extent of chronicity of the GN. The etiology of GN is based on the classification of GN into five groups: immune complex-mediated GN, antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated GN, anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) GN, monoclonal immunoglobulin-mediated GN and C3 glomerulopathy. Immune complex GN includes multiple specific diseases such as lupus nephritis, IgA nephropathy, infection-related GN and fibrillary GN. Read More

Post-infectious acute glomerulonephritis with podocytopathy induced by parvovirus B19 infection.

Pathol Int 2018 Mar 19;68(3):190-195. Epub 2018 Feb 19.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medicine, Kanazawa, Japan.

Human parvovirus B19 infection causes a variety of glomerular diseases such as post-infectious acute glomerulonephritis and collapsing glomerulopathy. Although each of these appears independently, it has not been fully determined why parvovirus B19 provokes such a variety of different glomerular phenotypes. Here, we report a 68-year-old Japanese man who showed endocapillary proliferative glomerulonephritis admixed with podocytopathy in association with parvovirus B19 infection. Read More

[Renal Involvement in Connective Tissue Diseases].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2018 Jan 22;143(2):89-100. Epub 2018 Jan 22.

Renal involvement is common and heterogenous in connective tissue diseases and has a main influence on prognosis and mortality. In systemic lupus erythematosus proliferative glomerulonephritis is the most common manifestation, while in primary Sjogren's syndrome interstitial nephritis with tubular dysfunction is the predominant pathological feature. In systemic sclerosis the most serious renal manifestation is scleroderma renal crisis characterized by abrupt onset of hypertension and acute kidney injury associated with an increase in plasma renin activity.

IgA-dominant Infection-related Glomerulonephritis in India: A Single-center Experience.

Indian J Nephrol 2017 Nov-Dec;27(6):435-439

Department of Nephrology, Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital, Madras Medical College, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

IgA-dominant infection-related glomerulonephritis (IRGN) is a distinct morphologic variant of IRGN, characterized by dominant or codominant glomerular deposits of IgA, mostly in elderly and patients with diabetes. More cases are being reported in recent times due to increased awareness of the disease entity and increased rate of infection. It usually presents as rapidly progressive renal failure with proteinuria, and treatment guidelines for this disease entity are not well defined. Read More
