Data for 26 patients with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, type I (MPGN I) and 22 with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, type III (MPGN III), as distinguished by glomerular ultrastructure, were analyzed to determine differences in presentation, complement perturbation, and glomerular morphology by light microscopy. MPGN III was detected with greater frequency by the chance discovery of hematuria and proteinuria in the otherwise healthy individual (MPGN III, 63%; MPGN I, 30%; P… CONTINUE READING
