Evidence of Both anti-GBM and Immune Complex Mediated Pathogenesis in the Initial Phase of Goodpasture's Syndrome

A Pasternack et al. Clin Nephrol.

Abstract

A 19 year old women presented with pulmonary hemorrhage, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis and antiglomerular basement membrane antibody in her serum. In the initial phase of the disease a double layered linear deposit of IgG was seen on the glomerular capillary basement membrane together with a finely granular or focal and lumpy single layer deposit of C3 and numerous small subepithelial electron dense deposits. These findings are suggestive of the simultaneous occurrence of anti-GBM and immune complex glomerulonephritis.
