Özet

Introduction. More than 50% of glomerular crescent formation is required for a diagnosis of crescentic glomerulonephritis in a kidney biopsy. Although treatment protocols have been established for diffuse crescentic glomerulonephritis, there is no standard treatment for patients with fewer crescents in renal biopsies. In this study the importance of crescent percentage and clinical features on renal survival independent of underlying disease was investigated.
