BACKGROUND: Rituximab is effective as therapy for induction of remission in anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV).

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare lymphoid neoplasm occurring in about 6% of all non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. Although nephrotic syndrome due to various glomerulopathies is well described in patients with lymphomas, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) with MCL has been reported only once before. We present a second case of FSGS associated with MCL that was resistant to standard treatment of FSGS but resolved when the underlying MCL was treated.

The other patient developed melaena secondary to downhill oesophageal varices...
