What are the complications of membranous nephropathy? Membranous nephropathy is a common cause of adult nephrotic syndrome, clinical manifestations of nephrotic syndrome (large amounts of proteinuria, hypoproteinemia, high edema, hyperlipidemia), or asymptomatic, non-nephropathy range of proteinuria. Inappropriate treatment of membranous nephropathy can lead to a series of complications, including coagulation and renal vein thrombosis, combined with anti-glomerular basement membrane crescentic nephritis is the most serious. The following is a detailed description.
Hypercoagulant and renal vein thrombosis: due to membranous nephropathy in blood clotting factor levels increased, platelet adhesion and cohesion increased, antithrombin Ⅲ and anti-fibrinolytic enzyme activity increased, and produce high coagulation. The incidence of renal vein thrombosis in this disease about 50%, with chronic type more common, no obvious symptoms, but aggravate membranous nephropathy.
Combined with anti-glomerular basement membrane crescentic glomerulonephritis: due to basement membrane damage, membrane antigen exposure or release can lead to anti-basement membrane antibody formation. Anti-neutrophil antibodies, anti-neutrophil antibodies (ANCA) may be detected in serum.
The above content is a serious complication of membranous nephritis, I believe we all have a certain understanding.
