Un caso di gammopatia monoclonale di significato renale in un paziente con glomerulopatia immunotattoide
A case of monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance in a patient affected by immunotactoid glomerulopathy
<p>Monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance is defined by the causal relationship between a small&nbsp;B-cell clone and the renal disease. Immunotactoid glomerulopathy is a rare glomerular disease characterized by<br />highly organized crystalline structure of Congo Red-negative immune deposits in the absence of systemic disease.&nbsp;We describe a 54 years-old man with non-nephrotic proteinuria and chronic renal failure. Laboratory findings revealed&nbsp;a serum monoclonal component. Renal histology showed a morphological pattern of membrano-proliferative&nbsp;glomerulonephritis; electron microscopy evidenced micro tubular structures within the mesangium measuring&nbsp;approximately 20 nm in thickness, similar to cryoglobulins. Renal immunofluorescence demonstrated in the deposits&nbsp;the same monoclonal component observed in serum, leading to a final diagnosis of immunotactoid glomerulopathy.</p>
