RODRIGUEZ, Martha Patricia et al. Nephrotic syndrome secondary to membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis due to Sjögren's syndrome. Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2017, vol.42, n.2, pp.136-139. ISSN 0120-2448.

Sjögren's syndrome (SS) is a chronic autoimmune disease primary or secondary to other immunological disorders. The prevalence is 0.05-0.23%, male: female ratio 1:9, age group 52-72 years. Renal involvement in primary SS can lead to glomerular and/or tubular involvement.

The case of a 56-year-old man previously healthy that presented nephrotic syndrome in the context of a membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) and was diagnosed with SS with glomerular involvement is reported, and a literature review was performed. (Acta Med Colomb 2017; 42: 136-139).

Keywords : membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis; nephrotic syndrome; Sjögren's syndrome.
