Rights and Permissions

Collagenofibrotic glomerulopathy is a rare condition characterized by deposition of Type III collagen fibers in the subendothelial space and mesangium of the glomerulus. Only 17 cases have been reported from India. A definite diagnosis can only be established when typical histological findings are supported by electron microscopy. It is characterized by indolent progression and has no definitive therapy.
