Type III CGN is associated with the absence of glomerular immune complex deposition (pauci-immune) and is associated with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA). Microscopic polyangiitis and idiopathic pauci-immune necrotizing glomerulonephritis (NCGN) are strongly associated with ANCA directed against myeloperoxidase (anti-MPO). We… CONTINUE READING
