Abstract

Interstitial changes are often observed in primary glomerular disease. However, the severity of these changes is not always mirrored by the glomerular involvement. Aim of this study is to evaluate if the presence of tubular, interstitial and vascular changes can predict the renal outcome of primary membranous glomerulonephritis (MGN).
