The occurrence of a rapidly progressive necrotizing glomerulonephritis after kidney transplantation is exceptional and usually leads to graft failure. We describe a case of necrotizing glomerulonephritis that developed 5 months after renal transplantation in a patient suffering from prolonged bowel paralysis and sepsis. After reinforcement of corticosteroid therapy and introduction of cyclophosphamide, glomerulonephritis recovered. Cyclophosphamide was stopped after 2 months and replaced by azatioprine while prednisone was progressively reduced...

Heroin addiction is associated with several severe and occasionally fatal renal complications. Acute renal failure consequent to rhabdomyolysis and myoglobinuria, when treated supportively, carries a good prognosis. Staphylococcal or other bacterial septicemia may in itself prove fatal and is associated with a proliferative immune complex, acute glomerulonephritis, which generally follows the course and prognosis of septicemia. The necrotizing angiitis reported in heroin addicts still is largely undefined. Focal and segmental glomerular sclerosis is the most common pathologic finding in the syndrome of heroin-associated nephropathy (HAN)...
