Renal vasculitis with HIV seropositivity: Potential manifestation of cytomegalovirus infection AMERICAN JOURNAL OF KIDNEY DISEASES Chertow, G. M., Rennke, H. G., Curhan, G. C., Brady, H. R. 1997; 30 (3): 428-432


The associations among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, and its variant, "collapsing glomerulopathy," often leading to chronic renal failure, are well described. HIV-seropositive patients may also develop a variety of immune complex-mediated glomerular diseases, including postinfectious glomerulonephritis, IgA nephropathy, and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Herein we describe a case of pauci-immune necrotizing renal vasculitis in an HIV-seropositive patient, thereby expanding the differential diagnosis of acute renal failure in this setting.
