Abstract

IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is one of the most common glomerulonephrites in the Western world. Its diagnosis is based on clinical history, laboratory data, and histopathological reports. The clinical picture and spectrum of severity upon presentation vary between cases. In this case report, we present a previously healthy 23-year-old Indian male with rapidly progressing IgA nephropathy leading to severe acute renal impairment. This case report highlights histopathological and clinical characteristics of a case of severe IgA nephropathy.
