Lamivudine ; Hepatitis B virus ; Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis
A 35-year-old man, previously hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carrier, presented with gross hematuria and heavy proteinuria that he had been suffering from for 1 month. Serum creatinine was 4.4 mg/dL. Renal biopsy showed pauci-immune crescentic glomerulonephritis. He received plasmapheresis and was treated with high-dose steroids and cyclophosphamide. Lamivudine was started for the prevention of hepatitis B virus (HBV) activation. Serum creatinine and proteinuria were ameliorated one week after the treatment. There was no sign of HBV activation after six months of treatment. We report a case of rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis in a HBV carrier successfully treated with high dose immunosuppressive therapy and prophylactic lamivudine.
