Long-term follow-up for IgG4-related kidney disease, including relapse information, is sparse. To gather data on this we retrospectively examined the clinical course of 43 patients with IgG4-related kidney disease, in which most patients were treated with, and maintained on, corticosteroids. One month after the start of treatment, most of the abnormal serology and radiology parameters had improved. In 34 of the steroid-treated patients whose follow-up period was more than 12 months (median 34 mo...

Immunoglobulin free light chains are produced in excess during normal antibody synthesis. Their evaluation is commonly used in case of a monoclonal gammopathy. In polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia related to the Sjogren syndrome or systemic lupus, erythematosus serum free light chain levels are increased and could correlate with disease activity. We show here that the κ () and λ () free light chains and the κ : λ ratio () are increased in sixteen patients with IgG4-related disease when compared ...

Multiple myeloma is the most frequent monoclonal gammopathy to involve the kidney; however, a growing number of kidney diseases associated with other monoclonal gammopathies are being recognized. Although many histopathologic patterns exist, they are all distinguished by the monoclonal immunoglobulin (or component) deposits. The hematologic disorder in these patients is more consistent with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) than with multiple myeloma. Unfortunately, due t...

IgG4-related kidney disease is a term that refers to any form of renal involvement by IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD), a recently recognized systemic immune-mediated disease. The most common renal manifestation is IgG4-related tubulointerstitial nephritis (IgG4-TIN), which presents as acute or chronic renal insufficiency, renal mass lesions, or both. On biopsy, IgG4-TIN shows a plasma cell–rich interstitial inflammatory infiltrate with increased IgG4+ plasma cells, along with expansile interstiti...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4RD) is a novel clinical disease entity characterized by elevated serum IgG4 concentration and tumefaction or tissue infiltration by IgG4-positive plasma cells. IgG4RD may be present in a certain proportion of patients with a wide variety of diseases, including Mikulicz’s disease, autoimmune pancreatitis, hypophysitis, Riedel thyroiditis, interstitial pneumonitis, interstitial nephritis, prostatitis, lymphadenopathy, retroperitoneal fibrosis, inflammatory aortic aneurysm...

Background IgG4-related disease has attracted wide attention recently. It is characterized by a high level of serum IgG4 and dense infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells into multiple organs, with the kidney being one representative target. Although several sets of diagnostic criteria for autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP) are available and renal lesion is recognized as an extra-pancreatic manifestation of AIP, it is difficult to differentiate IgG4-related tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) witho...

Immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related kidney disease characterizing tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) is an organ complication recognized in IgG4-related systemic diseases that has some unique aspects compared to other types of TIN. TIN lesions in the kidney can be tumor-like, focal or diffuse. Abnormal urinalysis is usually mild or absent even in the cases with deteriorated renal dysfunction. Some cases are accidentally diagnosed from radiological findings without renal dysfunction and/or abnormal ur...
