Membranous Glomerulonephritis (Membranous Nephropathy) Summary

Description: A type of glomerulonephritis that is characterized by the accumulation of immune deposits (COMPLEMENT MEMBRANE ATTACK COMPLEX) on the outer aspect of the GLOMERULAR BASEMENT MEMBRANE. It progresses from subepithelial dense deposits, to basement membrane reaction and eventual thickening of the basement membrane.

Also Known As: Membranous Nephropathy; Glomerulonephritis, Membranous; Extramembranous Glomerulopathy; Idiopathic Membranous Glomerulonephritis; Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy Show All >>
