Renal tissue from 185 patients with various nephropathies were studied by immunofluorescence, in order to look for the frequency and potential predominance of kappa or lambda light chain glomerular deposits. Four normal renal biopsies were used as controls. An overall study shows that light chains were present in glomeruli in 136 out of 185 cases; kappa light chain deposits were more frequent than lambda light chain deposits (73,5% and 64,3% respectively). An analytical study shows that this… CONTINUE READING
