Abstract

We report three cases of biopsy-documented renal glomerular disease occurring in patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphomas. One patient had immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy and another had membranous nephropathy. The remaining patient had an immune complex glomerulonephritis without immunofluorescent evidence of IgA, but with mesangial deposits and a clinical course notable for stable renal function, minimal proteinuria, and episodic gross hematuria of renal origin. These three cases, along with IgA nephropathy in two of the four previously reported cases, suggest a possible association between cutaneous T-cell lymphoma and this glomerular lesion. In addition, Sezary cells were observed in the urine of two patients, one without evidence of glomerular disease. The prognostic value of this new observation is unknown.
