Aim: Primary type I membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) is a rare cause of glomerular disease with a high relapse rate and poor prognosis. The aim of this study was: (i) to evaluate the histopathological findings associated with remission; and (ii) to document the possible clinical and histopathological factors predicting relapses.
