BANDERA RAMOS, Yoandri; GE MARTINEZ, Pablo Yulior  and  CORREA ACUNA, Yunia. Quickly progressive glomerulonephritis associated with lupus nephritis in a middle age patient. MEDISAN [online]. 2017, vol.21, n.8, pp.1046-1051. ISSN 1029-3019.

The case report of a 47 years patient is described with a history of lymphoproliferative syndrome who was admitted at the Hematology room of "Dr. Juan Bruno Zayas Alfonso" Teaching General Hospital in Santiago de Cuba, and then she was transferred to the Nephrology Service due to a polyarticular pain, fever, edemas, decrease of diuresis and progressive increase of the plasmatic creatinine. The clinical pattern and the lab tests allowed to diagnose a quickly progressive glomerulonephritis as consequence of a lupus nephritis class IV. The patient was treated with prednisone and cyclophosphamide, and she showed a satisfactory clinical course without the necessity of using hemodyalisis treatment

Keywords : progressive glomerulonephritis; lupus nephritis; systemic erythematous lupus; renal failure; Nephrology Service.
