Rheumatol Int 2019 Mar 23;39(3):561-567. Epub 2019 Jan 23.

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Dokuz Eylul University School of Medicine, Izmir, Turkey.

The introduction of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α)-targeting drugs has given new opportunities in the treatment of various inflammatory rheumatic diseases and has been the most important development in the treatment of spondyloarthritis (SpA). However, the increasing use and longer follow-up periods of treatment also pose risks of developing various adverse effects ranging from common ones including infections to uncommon renal complications. This report describes a case of infliximab-induced focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) in a 40-year-old female patient with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) who presented with asymptomatic proteinuria and microscopic hematuria.

Upregulated microRNAs in membranous glomerulonephropathy are associated with significant downregulation of IL6 and MYC mRNAs.

J Cell Physiol 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Section of Biology and Genetics Giovanni Sichel, Department of Biomedical and Biotechnological Sciences, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Membranous glomerulonephropathy (MGN) is a glomerulopathy characterized by subepithelial deposits of immune complexes on the extracapillary side of the glomerular basement membrane. Insertion of C5b-9 (complement membrane-attack complex) into the membrane leads to functional impairment of the glomerular capillary wall. Knowledge of the molecular pathogenesis of MGN is actually scanty. Read More

Membranous glomerulonephritis - a common, unspecific pattern of glomerular injury.

Pol J Pathol 2018 ;69(3):209-218

Membranous nephropathy (MN) is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis, associated with the presence of immune complexes beneath the podocytes on the subepithelial region of glomerular capillaries. MN is not a disease entity but one of relatively common patterns of glomerular injury that may be a manifestation of primary renal autoimmunological reaction or may evolve as a phenomenon secondary to wide spectrum of systemic processes.

IgG4-related kidney disease and retroperitoneal fibrosis: An update.

Mod Rheumatol 2018 Nov 30:1-24. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

c Division of Nephrology and Rheumatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine , Fukuoka University , Fukuoka , Japan.

The most representative kidney lesion of IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is plasma cell-rich tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) with distinctive imaging findings including multiple low-density lesions on contrast-enhanced computed tomography. In addition, membranous glomerulonephritis is a representative glomerular lesion of this disease. Recent advances have clarified that inflammation with IgG4-positive plasma cell infiltrates is not restricted to the renal parenchyma, but can be seen in outside the renal capsule, around medium-sized arteries such as lobar arteries, around nerves, and in the renal pelvis and periureter.

Paraffin Immunofluorescence: A Valuable Ancillary Technique in Renal Pathology.

Kidney Int Rep 2018 Nov 7;3(6):1260-1266. Epub 2018 Jul 7.

Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Immunofluorescence on frozen tissue is the gold standard immunohistochemical technique for evaluation of immune deposits in the kidney. When frozen tissue is not available or lacks glomeruli, immunofluorescence can be performed on paraffin tissue after antigen retrieval (paraffin immunofluorescence). Excellent results can be obtained by paraffin immunofluorescence in most immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritides and dysproteinemia-associated kidney lesions, and thus this technique has become a valuable salvage technique in renal pathology.

Recurrent venous thromboembolism in primary membranous nephropathy despite direct Xa inhibitor therapy.

J Nephrol 2018 Nov 12. Epub 2018 Nov 12.

Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Clinically apparent venous thromboembolism (VTE) occurs in approximately 7% of patients with membranous nephropathy. Hypoalbuminemia at diagnosis is an independent risk factor for VTE, and risk increases significantly as albumin falls. Optimal prophylactic and treatment anticoagulation regimens in the nephrotic syndrome remain unproven but novel oral anti-coagulants have become attractive therapeutic options. Read More

Membranous nephropathy followed by anti-glomerular basement disease: A case report and review of clinical presentation and treatment.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2018 19;6:2050313X18807621. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Department of Nephrology, Heidelberg University Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.

Membranous nephropathy is a common cause of nephrotic syndrome in adults and can be primary or secondary through autoimmune disease, medication, infection, or malignancy. Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis with crescent formation is rare in patients with membranous nephropathy. Thus, in cases with rapid decline in renal function, after excluding complications such as malignant hypertension, acute hypersensitivity interstitial nephritis, and bilateral renal vein thrombosis, the simultaneous occurrence of a superimposed glomerulonephritis should be considered.

Transplant Proc 2018 Oct 19;50(8):2565-2568. Epub 2018 Mar 19.

Department of Anatomy, Showa University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Primary membranous nephropathy (MN) is an organ-specific autoimmune disease mainly caused by autoantibodies acting against the podocyte antigen M-type phospholipase A2 receptor 1 (PLA2R). Herein we present the clinical and histologic findings, including PLA2R staining, of early recurrent MN after kidney transplantation that was successfully treated with rituximab. A 60-year-old Japanese man had end-stage renal failure due to steroid-resistant primary MN and underwent ABO-incompatible living donor kidney transplantation. Read More

[What is certain in the treatment of glomerulonephritis?]

Internist (Berl) 2018 Dec;59(12):1268-1278

Klinik für Nieren- und Hochdruckkrankheiten, Uniklinik der RWTH Aachen, Aachen, Deutschland.

Glomerulonephritides essentially all belong to the rare diseases; however, they are the most common cause of end-stage renal disease in young adults. Besides obtaining a specific diagnosis via a renal biopsy, assessing the prognosis constitutes the other essential step in the work-up, since this enables a decision to be made on whether supportive care with relatively few adverse effects is sufficient or whether additional immunosuppressive therapy is required. The latter is discussed focusing on the most common European types of glomerulonephritis: immunoglobulin A nephropathy, membranous glomerulonephritis, minimal change nephropathy and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.

A large, international study on post-transplant glomerular diseases: the TANGO project.

BMC Nephrol 2018 Sep 12;19(1):229. Epub 2018 Sep 12.

Renal Division, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, 221 Longwood Ave, Boston, MA, 02115, USA.

Background: Long-term outcomes in kidney transplantation (KT) have not significantly improved during the past twenty years. Despite being a leading cause of graft failure, glomerular disease (GD) recurrence remains poorly understood, due to heterogeneity in disease pathogenesis and clinical presentation, reliance on histopathology to confirm disease recurrence, and the low incidence of individual GD subtypes. Large, international cohorts of patients with GD are urgently needed to better understand the disease pathophysiology, predictors of recurrence, and response to therapy. Read More

Membranous Nephropathy with Crescent after Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation.

Intern Med 2019 Jan 24;58(1):91-96. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Department of Nephrology, Nagasaki University Hospital, Japan.

A 44-year-old man who received allogenic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation after being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia developed nephrosis when the dose of tacrolimus was tapered. A renal biopsy showed the granular deposition of immunoglobulin G in the glomerular basement membrane and subepithelial electron-dense deposits, crescent formation, C4d-positive staining of the peritubular capillary, and subendothelial swelling, suggesting that the main pathological diagnosis was membranous nephropathy and that chronic graft-versus-host disease played a role in the etiology of nephrosis. We herein report a case of membranous nephropathy with various pathological findings. Read More

Does cyclophosphamide still play a role in glomerular diseases?

Autoimmun Rev 2018 Oct 11;17(10):1022-1027. Epub 2018 Aug 11.

Nephrology Unit, Fondazione Ca' Granda IRCCS Ospdale Maggiore Policlinico Milano, Via della Commenda 15. 20122 Milano, Italy. Electronic address:

Cyclophosphamide is a prodrug that is converted to inactive carboxy-cyclophosphamide, acrolein and phosphoramide mustard, an agent that adds alkyl groups to oxygen and nitrogen atoms of guanine, one of the four nitrogen bases that form the DNA nucleotides, causing DNA cross-links and introducing DNA breaks. These cytotoxic and mutagenic effects mainly occur in proliferating cells. Repair mechanisms may prevent DNA damage in quiescent cells, but they may be insufficient to contrast the side effects of cyclophosphamide if high doses of the drug are used. Read More
