Abstract

We report a previously undescribed ultrastructural calcification of glomerular immune complex depositions in a patient with lupus nephritis. Such processes give rise to a distinctive ultrastructural calcified microspheriol in electron-dense immune deposits, and were associated with hypercalcemia and nephrocalcinosis. The cause of hypercalcemia in this patient was uncertain, but related to a granulomatous inflammation and abscess of the breast, Whereas ultrastructural microcalcification was associated with hypercalcemia, its distribution in the segmentalglomerular lesions suggests that an inflammatory process was contributory, The clinical follow-up indicates that the microcalcifications ofimmune complexes have not affected the outcome of nephritis and renalfunction.
