Immunoglobulin A nephropathy (N.IgA) is the world most common glomerular disease; 15-50% of patients develop loss of renal function in 10-20 years, and the rest remission or mild proteinuria/ hematuria. The optimal treatment is uncertain. Our aim was to develop evidence-based recommendations through research in Medline, Embasse, Lilacs and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials.
