Abstract

Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is considered to be a promising therapeutic agent in primary glomerulonephritis but there are no data on the use of MMF in Henoch-Schonlein nephritis (HSN). Herein we report the first adult crescentic HSN patient in whom long-term complete remission was achieved after MMF therapy.
