We present four patients with C3 nephritic factor associated with partial lipodystrophy and/or mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis type II. Each of these patients subsequently developed features of SLE, with an onset between 2 and 24 years after the development of the lipodystrophy or glomerulonephritis. All four patients had antinuclear antibodies and three of the four had anti-Ro antibodies. These patients bring to six the number of reported cases of this association. Possible explanations for the link between these two conditions are discussed.

Abstract

We present four patients with C3 nephritic factor associated with partial lipodystrophy and/or mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis type II. Each of these patients subsequently developed features of SLE, with an onset between 2 and 24 years after the development of the lipodystrophy or glomerulonephritis. All four patients had antinuclear antibodies and three of the four had anti-Ro antibodies. These patients bring to six the number of reported cases of this association. Possible explanations for the link between these two conditions are discussed.
