노인 환자에서 조기위암에 병발한 IgA 신병증 1례
IgA nephropathy is the most common form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposit of IgA on mesangium. We experienced an elderly patient who was admitted for generalized edema, and diagnosed IgA nephropathy and early gastric cancer concomittantly. It has been reported that the incidence of nephrotic syndrome combined with malignancy increases with aging. Moreover, close relationship between IgA nephropathy and malignancy has been reported especially in the elderly patient. So, active investigations for possible malignancy are required in case of elderly patient with IgA nephropathy. In this case, we found improved proteinuria and hematuria of the patient after tumor resection during following up. This case suggest causal association between early gastric cancer and IgA nephropathy clinically.
