Disease definition Dense deposit disease, a histological subtype of MPGN see this term is an idiopathic chronic progressive kidney disorder distinguished by the presence of intra-membranous dense deposits in addition to immune complex subendothelial deposits in the glomerular capillary walls. The use of Rituximab the monoclonal anti-CD 20 antibody therapy in the setting of renal transplantation is multiple and includes desensitization and ABO-incompatible transplantation, treatment of humoral rejection, post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorders and recurrent or de novo glomerular diseases.

The treatment of this entity is not consensual and represents a challenge to clinicians. To date, there are no studies of this therapy in renal transplant and randomized controlled trials are needed Post-transplantation morbidity in renal transplant patients with hepatitis C virus HCV infection may be partially explained by the risk of de novo or recurrent HCV associated glomerulopathieswhich can lead to allograft dysfunction.

He was admitted in the hospital for further investigation. Adjusted comparisons were performed using the Mantel-Haenszel method and a multivariate logistic regression model.
