Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis

Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis: Introduction

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. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis is available below.
