For 18 patients, the histological diagnosis was mesangioproliferative/ mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis, of which one patient had evidence of associated schistosomiasis infection.
Causes of CKD (number affected) were auto-somal dominant polycystic kidney disease (n = 3); chronic hypertensive nephropathy, no histology (n = 9); diabetic nephropathy (n = 6); IgA nephropathy, histologically proven (n = 5); membranous nephropathy, idiopathic (n = 8); mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis (n = 3); mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis type 1 (n = 3); other primary renal disease (n = 17); systemic vasculitis (n = 3); tubulo-interstitial nephritis, no histology (n = 2); and etiology unknown (n = 21).
HBV infection is associated with a range of kidney diseases, most commonly membranous nephropathy and mesangiocapillary
Treatment of mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis with alternate-day prednisone - a report of The International Study of Kidney Disease in Children.
Eden O'Shea-Price from Prestatyn had to stop eating processed foods and limit her salt and dairy intake, after she was diagnosed with a chronic condition called Mesangiocapillary
Renal manifestations are mainly associated with two parasites: (i) Plasmodium malariae, which usually gives rise to an immune-complex mediated mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis (GN) several weeks after the onset of symptoms; and (ii) Plasmodium falciparum, which can cause different types of renal alterations, ranging from asymptomatic disorders to acute renal failure (1-2).
Some are believed to be related to the CD itself (proximal tubular dysfunction, secondary amyloidosis, calcium oxalate stones, tubular proteinuria with normal renal function, and TIN), some are related to drug complications (TIN), and some rare conditions may be coincidental (IgA nephropathy, IgM nephropathy, minimal-change glomerulonephritis, membranous glomerulonephritis, antiglomerular basement membrane glomerulonephritis, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, and crescentic glomerulonephritis).
Hepatitis C, which was present in several patients, may potentially cause mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis, but no evidence of this was observed.
Subsequent chapters deal with specific renal diseases such as Anti-GBM disease, membranous nephropathy, lupus nephritis, IgArelated glomerulonephropathies, mesangiocapillary
glomerulonephritis, minimal change nephropathy and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, systemic vasculitis and crescentic glomerulonephritis, tubulointersitial nephritis, other renal disease of immunological interest and therapeutic aspects.
Visual impairment caused by retinal abnormalities in mesangiocapillary
(membranoproliferative) glomerulonephritis Type II ("dense deposit disease").
