Membranous glomerulonephritis can manifest as a paraneoplastic syndrome. The presence of evidence that supports the relationship between malignancy and membranous glomerulonephritis remains unresolved, though. Membranous glomerulonephritis has been commonly reported as associated with solid or hematologic malignancy, such as lung cancer, prostate cancer, and gastro-intestinal cancer, but its concomitant existence with skin cancer is rare. This paper reports a case of membranous glomerulonephritis combined with basal cell carcinoma that was successfully treated with the excision of the basal skin cell carcinoma.
