Author information

Department of Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA.


Renal involvement in thyroid diseases is an unusual event. Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitis has been reported in propylthiouracil-treated patients. Membranous glomerulonephritis has been reported in association with both antithyroglobulin and thyroid antimicrosomal antibodies. The development of membranous glomerulonephritis may be associated with administration of 131I. We present a patient who developed membranous glomerulonephritis after administration of 131I. The clinical and pathological features of renal involvement in thyroid diseases are reviewed.
