Glomerulonephritis (40) was classified according to the histological results: 20 were categorized as membrano-proliferative glomerulonephritis, 17 as membranous glomerulonephritis
, and three as proliferative glomerulonephritis.
This basic classification schema included the classes of normal glomeruli (class I), pure mesangial disease (class II), focal proliferative glomerulonephritis (class III), diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis (class IV), and membranous glomerulonephritis
Herein we report an unusual case of tonsillar Kaposi sarcoma in a patient with membranous glomerulonephritis
treated with prednisolone and cyclosporine.
Hepatitis B virus has been linked to the development of membranous glomerulonephritis
.  Clinical recognition of carrier state of HBV is more frequently done by detection of HBsAg in the serum.
There is also an association between CCS and hypothyroidism and various other autoimmune diseases such as membranous glomerulonephritis
, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma.
Gullain Barre syndrome has been observed in patients with membranous glomerulonephritis
, focal segmental glomerulonephritis, extra membranous glomerulonephropathy or nephrotic syndrome.
Detection of Hepatitis C core protein in the glomeruli of patients with membranous glomerulonephritis
. Clin Nephrol 1996; 45: 71-6.
The pattern of disease was: membranous glomerulonephritis
in 24%, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) in 18.4%, mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis in 2%, and minimal change disease (MCD)in 16% of the cases.
