BACKGROUND Although there have been many reports on clinicopathological studies of IgAN, information is limited regarding the long-term evolution of a renal histology by analysing samples obtained not only during normal renal function but also after the establishment of an impaired renal function in individual patients. METHODS We analysed 18 pairs of serial biopsy specimens from 18 patients with IgA nephropathy (IgAN) in whom the first renal biopsies were performed while normal renal… CONTINUE READING
