Abstract

IgG4-related diseases are a group of chronic, progressive inflammatory diseases with fibrosis and sclerosis of unknown origin. Here, we report a case of IgG4-related nephropathy combined with Tuberculosis (TB) for >1 month in a 69-year-old man with abnormal renal function, which was found on physical examination. He presented with a low level of proteinuria, abnormally high globulin, renal dysfunction and increased kidney size, as well as a positive T-spot test. After renal biopsy of IgG4-related tubulointerstitial nephritis, the patient was finally diagnosed with IgG4- related nephropathy combined with TB, and we followed up the clinical treatment effect.
