Immunoglobulin M (IgM) nephropathy is an idiopathic glomerulonephritis characterized by mesangial deposits of IgM. IgM nephropathy presenting with proteinuria, especially nephrotic syndrome, frequently is steroid-dependent or steroidresistant and associated with reaching endstage renal disease after a 15-year follow-up. Because no long-term effective treatment is known for patients with IgM nephropathy, there is a clear need for therapeutic alternatives. We describe a patient with IgM nephropathy represented by recurrence of nephrotic syndrome who achieved longterm remission with interferon-α sustained treatment.
