BACKGROUND Very few cases of non-organized and non-Randall-type monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease (MIDD) associated with membranous features have been reported. Information on clinicopathological features and prognosis in this entity is limited. METHODS We reviewed 5443 renal biopsies processed at our department, and identified three patients with MIDD associated with membranous features. We evaluated clinicopathological features and outcomes in these patients. RESULTS All…

An IgA1-lambda-type monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease associated with membranous features in a patient with IgG4-related kidney disease: a case report

TLDR
This is the first reported case of IgG4-related TIN associated with IgA1-λ-type MIDD with membranous features, and the patient’s eosinophilia remarkably improved and his serum creatinine, IgG, and IgG 4 levels decreased to within the normal ranges, however, massive proteinuria persisted.

Proliferative Glomerulonephritis With Monoclonal IgG Deposits in a Young Patient: A Case Report

Proliferative glomerulonephritis with monoclonal IgG deposits (PGNMID) is a newly described entity that belongs to the class of disorders known as monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance (MGRS).

A Case of Proliferative Glomerulonephritis with Monoclonal IgG Deposits That Showed Predominantly Membranous Features

TLDR
The case of PGNMID that showed predominantly membranous features on light microscopy is presented, a 76-year-old male who had monoclonal gammopathy who showed diffuse thickening of the glomerular capillary walls with focal mesangial proliferation.

Proliferative glomerulonephritis with monoclonal IgG2κ deposit successfully treated with steroids: a case report and review of the literature

TLDR
Although the clinical outcomes of PGNMID remain to be defined, MN features may possibly be a sign of favourable prognosis—a hypothesis supported by recent reports and further solidify the clinical aspects of this new disease entity.

Renal involvement of monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease associated with an unusual monoclonal immunoglobulin A glycan profile

TLDR
The present case suggests that any variation in Ig glycosylation may be a step in the pathogenesis of MIDD with renal involvement and/or contribute to some cases of IgA nephropathy.

Renal involvement of monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease associated with an unusual monoclonal immunoglobulin A glycan profile

TLDR
The present case suggests that any variation in Ig glycosylation may be a step in the pathogenesis of MIDD with renal involvement and/or contribute to some cases of IgA nephropathy.

Patterns of noncryoglobulinemic glomerulonephritis with monoclonal Ig deposits: correlation with IgG subclass and response to rituximab.

TLDR
GN with monoclonal Ig deposits can be associated with MPGN or MN, which are correlated with IgG3 and IgG1 isotypes, respectively, and rituximab appears to have a very favorable benefit-to-risk ratio for patients with no overt hematologic malignancy.

Non-Randall Glomerulonephritis with Non-Organized Monoclonal Ig Deposits

TLDR
Several reports suggest that rituximab, a B-cell depleting agent, could be a promising treatment in patients without overt malignancy, including those with post-kidney transplant recurrence of the disease.

Membranous Nephropathy With Monoclonal IgM Lambda Deposits in a Patient With IgM Monoclonal Gammopathy: A Case Report

TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first case of monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance presenting as membranous nephropathy with monOClonal IgM deposits, in which chronological immunohistochemical changes were observed and rituximab therapy was effective.

Proliferative glomerulonephritis with monoclonal IgG deposits: a distinct entity mimicking immune-complex glomerulonephritis.

TLDR
Glomerular deposition of monoclonal IgG can produce a proliferative glomerulonephritis that mimics immune-complex glomerulate involvement by light and electron microscopy.

Ultrastructural pattern and classification of renal monoclonal immunoglobulin deposits

TLDR
A comprehensive classification for diseases featuring the deposition in tissues of monoclonal Ig is proposed, particularly valuable for the precise localization of immunoglobulin deposits and for determining the pattern of deposition: organized, homogeneous (non-organized) or mixed.

IgG subclasses in patients with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, and lupus nephritis.

TLDR
Ig3 is an important factor in the pathogenesis of primary MPGN, while IgG4 relates to glomerular IgG deposition in MN, and serum concentrations of IgG subclasses and %IgG in all groups were almost within normal range based on the values in Japanese healthy adults.

Immunoglobulin light (heavy)-chain deposition disease: from molecular medicine to pathophysiology-driven therapy.

TLDR
Because these diseases represent a model of glomerular and interstitial fibrosis that is induced by a single molecule species, a better understanding of their pathomechanisms may help to unravel the pathophysiology of kidney fibrosis and renal disease progression.

TLDR
The major causes of renal insufficiency, present initially in half of the patients with multiple myeloma, are "myeloma kidney" and hypercalcemia, and the benefit of plasma exchange has not been proven.
