Mizoribine for crescentic glomerulonephritis with sarcoidosis: effectiveness not only for urinalysis abnormalities but also for hilar lymph node enlargement
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease related to helper T cell responses. We recently experienced the case of a 57-year-old woman with sarcoidosis complicated by crescentic glomerulonephritis with low levels of myeloperoxidase-antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody. We herein describe the details of her clinical course and discuss the effectiveness of mizoribine, which has an immunosuppressive effect equivalent to that of mycophenolate mofetil, not only for urinalysis abnormalities but also for hilar lymph node enlargement.
