Recurrent Membranous Glomerulonephritis

Membranous glomerulonephritis is principally characterized by a diffuse glomerular basement membrane thickening. Subepithelial spikes are seen when biopsies are evaluated with silver stains. Immunofluorescence microscopy demonstrates a diffuse granular deposition of immunoglobulins and complement in the glomerular capillary basement membranes. Electron microscopy shows regularly spaced subepithelial electron dense deposits
