Abstract

A histopathological classification system for ANCA-associated vasculitis was recently published, but whether this system predicts renal outcome requires validation. Here, we analyzed data from 164 consecutive patients with biopsy-proven renal involvement of ANCA-associated vasculitis. The ANCA-associated GN (AGN) classification categorizes patients as having focal, mixed, crescentic, or sclerotic GN. Five-year renal survival rates by categories of the AGN classification scheme were 91% for focal, 69% for mixed, and 64% for crescentic (log-rank P
