Abstract

Extracapillary proliferative glomerulonephritis is characterized by hematuria and proteinuria associated with renal failure. Renal impairment may worsen rapidly, sometimes leading to an emergency situation because the renal prognosis is directly related to delay to treatment. This case illustrates an uncommon complication of Sjögren's syndrome, compared with the usual tubulointerstitial disorders. The mechanism remains unknown, but outcome can be favorable with rapidly initiated immunosuppressor treatment.
