Author information

  • 1Maimonides Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York, USA.


Immunoglobulin A nephropathy is the most common primary glomerulonephritis worldwide. The pathogenesis is still unknown and newer treatments are being researched. Rarely, it can be associated with other disorders. Its association with hereditary lymphedema has been reported on one occasion but never with lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome. We report a patient with hereditary lymphedema-distichiasis syndrome and immunoglobulin A nephropathy occurring simultaneously.
