Abstract: We determined the natural history of immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) among patients who presented with mild proteinuria (0.2 to 0.4 g/day), and factors associated with development of adverse clinical events, defined as proteinuria 竕ァ 1.0g/day, blood pressure > 130/80mmHg, serum creatinine 竕ァ 1.4mg/dl. We did analyzed data from 27 patients(mean age 30 ツア 12 years) with IgAN accompanied by mild proteinuria between 1990 and 1998. We also evaluated semiquantitave scores of glomerulosclerosis, tubulointerstitial injury, hyaline arteriosclerosis, and IgAN classification. The median duration of follow-up was 51 months. During followup, at least one adverse clinical event affected 15 patients (56%): among who eight (53%) developed proteinuria. And one of 8 developed impaired renal function and 7 (47%) became hypertensive. Another 12 patients (44%) were not affected by adverse clinical events. The clinical findings were not significantly different between the adverse events and no evens group. The scores of glomerulosclerosis and tubulointerstitial injury reveled significant differences between events. The only renal histological parameters of glomerulosclerosis and adverse clinical events were statistically correlated with renal survival. We concluded that IgAN with mild proteinuria frequently follows a slow by progressive course and that the severity of glomerulosclerosis may be predictable prognostic factor in patients who have IgAN with by mild proteinuria.
