Rapidly Progressive (crescentric) Glomerulonephritis in Erythema Nodosum Leprosum
Pranesh Nipm, RD Mukhija, Rahul Kumar, SP Sharma
A middle aged man was hospitalised in the state of acute renal failure with erythema nodosum lepromum. He was having progressive anaemia, oliguria, azotemia and impaired renal function. The outcome was fatal. Autopsy revealed smooth congested kidney with histopathological features of rapidly progressive - (crescentric) glomerulo-nephritis, presumably a result of immune-complex deposition from recurrent erythema nodosum leprosum episodes.
