IgG lambda type of monoclonal gammopathy and thin basement membrane nephropathy were established in a middle-aged man examined because of persistent haematuria, lambda light-chain proteinuria and moderately diminished renal function. A 10% level of plasmocytosis was verified by bone-marrow aspiration. The more than 6-year follow-up showed the gammopathy to be benign. The thin basement membrane nephropathy was verified by electronmicroscopic analysis of renal tissue obtained by percutaneous renal biopsy: lamina densa of the glomerular capillaries thinned to 30-100 nm. In spite of the usually good outcome of thin basement membrane nephropathy, in this case it was accompanied by glomerular sclerosis, subsequent destruction of nephrons, hypertensive vascular alterations and a clinical deterioration of the renal function after 4 years. A rebiopsy excluded the possible complications (amyloidosis, non-amyloid immunoglobulin nephropathy, cylinder nephropathy, etc) of light-chain proteinuria.
