[34] in Cape Town identified the most frequent causes of NS as HIVAN (25.2%), MPGN (7.8%) and LN (7.8%), while Seedat [35] in Durban, SA, reported MPGN to be the most frequent cause of NS in black patients (47.0%), followed by MGN (25.0%).
MPGN and mesangial proliferative GN were each reported in 4.3% of our patients, and these were less prevalent in our cohort compared with that in earlier studies [8-10] owing to an improved infection control; similar results have been reported in recent data from Saudi Arabia [22] and Dubai [21].
Although the most frequent histologic pattern identified by light microscopy is MPGN other glomerular changes such as mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis and endocapillary proliferative GN with or without crescents have also been described in patients with DDD [6].
Monoclonal gammopathy has been associated with both immune complex type MPGN and C3GP, including DDD.
Sarah, also mum to Erin, 18, Isaac, 17 and Will, 12, continued: "She became really swollen and was sent to Alder Hey Hospital for three months where the tests showed that these were the symptoms of MPGN. Eden was there when we were given the diagnoses and I just broke down.

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) is characterized by profound hypocomplementemia, mesangial cell proliferation, mesangial interposition, and the deposition of immunoglobulins and complements in the peripheral portion of the nodules (fringe) formed by merging of glomerular capillaries.
Seventy-six percent had minimal change nephrotic syndrome (MCNS) (also called minimal change disease [MCD]), 6.9% had focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and 7.5% had membranoproliferative glomeruloanephritis (MPGN).

High titers of anti-aldolase reductase and anti-SOD2 antibodies were present in glomeruli of IMN patients but not in patients with LN or membrano proliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN).
