ABSTRACT
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical educationPrimary IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the commonest glomerulopathy worldwide. Its clinical presentation, histology and prognosis vary widely. The lesions of segmental glomerulosclerosis are common in IgAN and represent participation of at least three pathogenetic mechanisms. It is important to identify the different subtypes of segmental sclerosing lesions as these are of prognostic value.
