Abstract

IgA nephropathy (IGAN) was first described by Berger and Hinglais in 1968. It is now the most common glomerular disease worldwide. IGAN has been associated with several diseases. Its association with psoriasis has been rarely described. We report a case of IGAN with crescentic changes, associated with psoriasis vulgaris. We review the literature on the association of IGAN with psoriasis and discuss the likely pathogenetic linkage.
