Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) denotes a general pattern of glomerular injury that is easily recognized by light microscopy. With additional studies, MPGN subgrouping is possible. For example, electron microscopy resolves differences in electron-dense deposition that are classically referred to as MPGN type I (MPGN I), MPGN II, and MPGN III, while immunofluorescence typically detects immunoglobulins in MPGN I and MPGN III but not in MPGN II. All three MPGN types stain positive… CONTINUE READING
