Abstract

We report about a 35 year old previously apparently healthy male patient with terminal chronic renal failure due to IgA nephropathy. The initial symptoms were similar to those of a banal viral respiratory infection. Massive hypertension, orthopnea, edema and blurred vision finally led to the diagnosis of an end stage renal disease. In the renal biopsy the final stage of IgA nephropathy was detected with mostly deserted glomeruli. Hemodialysis was necessary. Among it the patient is well according to the circumstances. He is waiting for a renal transplant.
