Our aim was to determine the profile of nephropathy in adults in our region.


Consecutive renal biopsies performed between January 2007 and May 2012 were reviewed. There were 90 cases (M 44, F 46, mean age: 36.63±12.59).


The most common indication for renal biopsy was nephritic syndrome and the most common diagnosis was membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis.


In the last 10 years, similar findings were obtained in studies on the epidemiology of glomerulonephritis and, MPGN remains in first place.

Keywords: Glomerulonephritis, epidemiology, membranoproliferative, glomerulonephritis
