Abstract

A 56-year-old woman developed nephrotic syndrome in association with pulmonary sarcoidosis. Renal biopsy revealed both granulomatous interstitial nephritis and membranous nephropathy. Treatment with steroids resulted in a decrease in proteinuria and there was no deterioration in renal function over a subsequent period of 10 months. This case provides further evidence that secondary membranous nephropathy associated with sarcoidosis should be treated with steroids.
