Abstract

TAGLE, Rodrigo et al. Recurrence of goodpasture syndrome with negative antiglomerular basement antibodies. Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2019, vol.147, n.3, pp.390-394. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872019000300390.

Goodpasture Syndrome is described as a single episode disease entity. It is diagnosed with the demonstration of antiglomerular basement (anti-GBM) antibodies in plasma or renal tissue. Although the recurrence of anti-GBM disease is rare, it has been reported in up to 3% of cases. Recurrence with negative anti-GBM antibodies in plasma is even less frequent We report a 63 years old male in whom anti-GBM disease recurred without detectable anti-GBM antibodies in plasma, despite having positive antibodies at the onset.

Keywords : Antibodies; Anti Glomerular Basement Membrane Disease; Glomerular Basement Membrane; Glomerulonephritis.
