Abstract

Fibrillary glomerulonephritis (FGN) is a pathological diagnosis that is rarely associated with systemic disorders. In this case report, we describe a woman who presented with FGN of the crescentic type in association with hepatitis C viral infection. The existing literature on the association between these 2 disorders is reviewed, and postulated therapy is presented.
