A 27-year-old male developed nonoliguric renal failure. Renal biopsy of the left kidney showed infiltration by a diffuse large-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). Laparoscopy, CT scans of the abdomen and thorax, and bone-marrow biopsy revealed no further manifestations of lymphoma. Primary renal NHL was diagnosed. The patient attained complete remission with cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) chemotherapy and remained disease-free for 13 years. Eight years after his first presentation, the patient developed acute oliguric renal failure with nephrotic syndrome. Mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis was diagnosed in a biopsy of the left kidney. Chronic hemodialysis was required until cadaver kidney transplantation was successfully performed 5 years later. Although the association of NHL and glomerulonephritis has been described several times before, to our knowledge this is the first report of glomerulonephritis in primary renal lymphoma.
