Recurrent IgA Nephropathy

Histopathological examination in recurrent IgA nephropathy most commonly shows increased mesangial matrix or mild mesangial proliferation. Immunofluorescence examination and electron microscopy confirm the presence of IgA immune complex deposits in a mesangial location. Other patterns of glomerular injury include minimal change, endocapillary proliferation, membranous nephropathy and combined lesions.
