Recurrent Renal Disease

The frequency and clinical significance of recurrence varies with the disease (14). The diseases that recur in >25% are dense deposit disease (90%), immunotactoid/fibrillary glomerulonephritis (GN) (67%), diabetes (>50%), IgA nephropathy (45%), Henoch-Schonlein purpura (33%), focal glomerular sclerosis (30%), idiopathic hemolytic uremic syndrome (27%), and type I membranoproliferative GN (27%). Lupus nephritis and anti-GBM disease recur infrequently (<5%). The diagnosis of recurrence requires accurate classification of the original disease and lesions that differ from chronic allograft glomerulopathy.
