Approche clinique des glomérulonéphrites membranoprolifératives primitives

Abstract : Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis represent a heterogeneous group of nephropathies. During the last five years, our understanding of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis has greatly improved. Animal models and the study of complement genetics led to the dissection of the physiopathology of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, to the individualization of a new entity, C3 glomerulopathy, and to a new classification of these nephropathies. The study of large cohorts has also changed the clinical picture of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis that has been long dominated by the severity of a single type of dense deposits disease. Finally, the rediscovery of complement through the study of the atypical haemolytic uremic syndrome and the availability in clinical practice of complement inhibitors have paved the way for new therapeutic approaches of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis.
