Distinguishing primary from secondary membranous nephropathy

Highlights

Anti-phospholipase A2 receptor (PLA2R) antibodies are highly specific for the diagnosis of primary membranous nephropathy.

     

As many as 70% to 75% of patients with primary membranous nephropathy are positive for anti-PLA2R.

 

A titer increase, decrease, or disappearance generally precedes a change in clinical status.
