Idiopathic nodular glomerulosclerosis- a rare case
Jazmin I. Yepez Kuri, Carlos L. Torres Roman, Anand Reddy, Yasir Ahmed
Nodular glomerulosclerosis is considered a signature lesion of diabetes nephropathy, but when it occurs in the absence of diabetes, it is called Idiopathic Nodular Glomerulosclerosis (ING). Idiopathic nodular glomerulosclerosis is a very rare disease and has been associated with obesity, hypertension, and smoking. We report a case of ING presenting as end-stage renal failure requiring hemodialysis.
