BASABE, Mearlyn; TROCHE, Avelina; MARTINEZ-PICO, Marlene  and  MOREL, Zoilo. IgA Nephropathy in an adolescent with juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus. A case report. Pediatr. (Asunción) [online]. 2023, vol.50, n.1, pp.58-63.  Epub Apr 18, 2023. ISSN 1683-9803.


Juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (JSLE) is a multisystem autoimmune disease characterized by the production of autoantibodies and the frequent development of immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis. Lupus nephritis is a frequent and serious complication of JSLE, has a high associated morbidity rate, and is the cause of end-stage renal failure in many of these patients. IgA Nephropathy represents the most common etiology in the general population and is rarely associated with JSLE.

Clinical case:

a female adolescent with JSLE who was diagnosed with non-lupus nephritis (IgA nephropathy).


The anatomopathological diagnosis is key to establish the prognosis and plan the treatment.

Keywords : IgA nephropathy; IgA deposits; systemic lupus erythematosus.
