Les glomérulonéphrites primitives en bref

Abstract The glomerulonephritis (GN) are responsible for a significant amount of end stage renal disease. They may be secondary to another disease or idiopathic. When a secondary etiology has been excluded, it is called primary glomerulonephritis (PGN). Glomerular damage may have different presentations and there are many way to classify them. It is thus difficult for the non-specialist to understand the terminology used. This article is a summary of the most frequently encountered PGN such as: IgA nephropathy, membranous GN, idiopathic nephrotic syndrome, extracapillary and membranoproliferative GN. A brief description is given for each one of the PGN including epidemiology, semiology, histology and a pathophysiology explanation.
