Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Lupus nephritis (LN) represents the most dreadful complication of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). It is responsible for a major share of morbidity and mortality in these patients. The rate of development of this complication varies widely. The pathological lesions of LN are nowadays classified according to International Society of Nephrology/Renal Pathology Society (ISN/RPS) classification of 2003. This classification has been validated in many clinicopathological studies and has good inter-observer reproducibility. LN can involve any of the four components of the kidney parenchyma in variable combinations and at different time points in the disease course. Glomerular lesions represent the most commonly involved component and form the mainstay of pathological classifications of LN.
