We report a case of an 8-year-old girl with adrenogenital syndrome secondary to adrenocortical hyperplasia. Thirteen years later systemic lupus erythematosus developed with lupus nephritis. In spite of complex continuous immunosuppressive therapy, she died from terminal renal failure. At autopsy, extensive bilateral renal malacoplakia was discovered. The role of recurrent urinary tract infections and of immunological disturbances in the pathogenesis of malacoplakia is discussed.
