Abstract

Primary membranous nephropathy is typically a disease of middle-aged white men but should be included in the differential diagnosis of nephrotic syndrome in patients of any age and race. Serological anti-PLA2R testing must be interpreted in the appropriate clinical context and histological PLA2R staining is recommended in seronegative patients.
