The Frequency of Lupus nephropathy
Main Article Content
To find out the frequency of subtypes of lupus Nephropathy in diagnosed cases of SLE. We did a hospital based study involving 25 cases of lupus nephropathy from 1998 to 2001 at the department of medicine HMC, Peshawar to find out the age, sex distribution, extent of renal damage, type of renal histology and the degree of proteinuria. Lupus nephrolpathy is more common in young females and present with proteinureia while grade 3 glomemlopathy is the commonest lesion. A large community based study is needed to study the epidemiology of lupus nephropathy.
