In renal transplant recipients with type I membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN), the posttransplantation course can be complicated by a recurrence of the original disease. However, it is well known that a recurrence of type I MPGN and chronic transplant glomerulopathy (CTG) cannot easily be distinguished. It has been suggested that the two entities can be differentiated by using electron microscopy (EM) and immunofluorescence (IF) techniques. However, studies are lacking that compare… CONTINUE READING
