What is Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis?

  • Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis: A rare kidney disorder characterized by blood in the urine caused by a particular type of inflammation inside the kidneys. Immune system abnormalities result in abnormal immune deposits in the mesangial cells (part of the capillaries inside the kidneys) of the kidneys. The mesangial cells become bigger and their numbers increase as a result.

Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis, or a subtype of Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
