Abstract

A patient with Adamantiades-Behçet's disease with renal involvement is reported. This patient fulfilled the International Study Group criteria for the disease. Kidney biopsy was performed and proliferative glomerulonephritis with deposition of IgA and IgM immunoglobulins were demonstrated. Review of the literature demonstrates that renal involvement in this disease is not so rare as it was believed. Crescent formation and IgA nephropathy are infrequently observed. Treatment of renal involvement may require immunosuppressive drugs.
