Abstract

Intensive plasma-exchange, usually combined with steroids and cyclophosphamide, was carried out in 10 patients with rapidly progressive crescentic glomerulonephritis (primary in six and associated with systemic diseases in four), and in 11 adult patients with severe non-crescentic glomerulonephritis associated with systemic lupus erythematosus in four, and with essential mixed cryoglobulinemia in seven. Therapeutic benefit with improvement in renal function, possibly due to the effect of PE, was achieved in 8/10 patients with RPCGN, in 3/4 patients with SLE non-crescentic nephritis and in 6/7 patients with EMC nephritis. © 1983 Springer-Verlag.
