Abstract

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized with immune complex formation and renal involvement of lupus and may include several kinds of pathological conditions, but mostly, it is associated with immune complex-induced glomerular disease. Pauci-immune lupus nephritis is a very rare condition. We describe a 45-year-old female patient with pauci-immune crescentic necrotizing lupus nephritis and briefly discuss the possible mechanism and pathogenesis.
