Diagnostic Considerations

When evaluating a patient with suspected membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN), also consider conditions such as postinfectious glomerulonephritis, fibrillary glomerulonephritis, immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy, and vasculitis. In addition, recurrent MPGN needs to be differentiated from transplant glomerulopathy, which has a similar histology but lacks immune deposits.
