Am J Kidney Dis. 1990 Apr;15(4):361-3. doi: 10.1016/s0272-6386(12)80082-5.

Abstract

Numerous cases of glomerular disease in sickle cell patients have been reported. Glomerular disease in SC double heterozygotes has not been reported despite its equal prevalence in adults. We herein report a case of mesangiolytic glomerulopathy in a patient with SC disease.
