Primary Membranous Glomerulonephritis-associated with Schistosomal Nephropathy.

Indian J Nephrol 2019 Mar-Apr;29(2):140-142

Department of Pathology, Beni Seuf University, Beni Seuf, Egypt.

The association of bilharziasis with membranous nephropathy (MN) has long been debated. The relatively recent use of antibodies against the M-type phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R) has been proposed as a valuable tool to discriminate the idiopathic from secondary MNs. Anti-PLA2R antibodies are found in sera from about 70% of iMN patients, in contrast to patients with secondary MN, in whom serum anti-PLA2R antibodies could not be detected. Read More

Mod Pathol 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

III. Department of Medicine, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

Renal biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosis of membranous nephropathy. Circulating PLAR1 antibody found in 75% of patients with membranous nephropathy is very specific for the diagnosis of this disease. Therefore, the question arises whether PLAR1-antibody-positive patients still need a diagnostic renal biopsy. Read More

Anti-LRP2 Nephropathy With Abundant IgG4-Positive Plasma Cells: A Case Report.

Am J Kidney Dis 2019 Mar 12. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Pathology, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, OR. Electronic address:

In older adults, the most common kidney biopsy diagnoses include pauci-immune crescentic glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Recently, investigators described a small series of older patients (aged 66-80 years) with acute kidney injury and a kidney biopsy demonstrating tubular basement membrane (TBM) immune deposits of polytypic immunoglobulin G (IgG) and C3, acute tubular injury, and tubulointerstitial inflammation. They identified a circulating antibody against kidney tubular low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein 2 (LRP2; also known as megalin) in patients' sera and colocalization of LRP2 with IgG in TBM deposits.

High Spatial Resolution MALDI-MS Imaging in the Study of Membranous Nephropathy.

Proteomics Clin Appl 2019 01 19;13(1):e1800016. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of Medicine and Surgery, Clinical Proteomics and Metabolomics Unit, University of Milano-Bicocca, Vedano al Lambro, 20854, Italy.

Purpose: Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSI) technology has advanced rapidly during recent years with the development of instruments equipped with low-diameter lasers that are suitable for high spatial resolution imaging. This may provide significant advantages in certain fields of molecular pathology where more specific protein fingerprints of individual cell types are required, such as renal pathology.

Experimental Design: Here MALDI-MSI analysis of a cohort of membranous nephropathy (MN) patients is performed among which patients either responded favorably (R; n = 6), or unfavorably (NR; n = 4), to immunosuppressive treatment (Ponticelli Regimen), employing a 10 µm laser spot diameter.

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

J Cell Physiol 2019 Aug 4;234(8):12625-12636. 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 2019 Mar 8;29(2):231-239. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

c Faculty of Medicine, Division of Nephrology and Rheumatology, Department of Internal 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
