Kidney diseases related to the immune system include, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, lupus nephritis, and nephritis associated with connective tissue disorders.
This study will allow researchers to admit and follow patients suffering from autoimmune diseases of the kidney. It will attempt to provide information about the causes and specific abnormalities associated with autoimmune kidney disease.
Patients with kidney disease as a result of their immune system, and patients with diseases of the immune system who may later develop kidney disease, will be potential subjects for this study.
Patients will undergo a history and physical examination, and standard laboratory test to more closely understand the causes, signs, symptoms, and responses to medication of these diseases. Based on these evaluations the patients may qualify as candidates for other experimental studies. At any time these patients may be asked to submit blood or urine samples for further research.

|Actual Study Start Date :||June 25, 1992|
Patients with known or suspected immunologically-mediated kidney diseases or immunologically-mediated diseases with potential for kidney disease.
- Provision of biospecimens [ Time Frame: On-going ]Patients with autoimmune diseases for whom there are no current experimental treatment protocols can be admitted for study and follow- up; they will provide a ready pool of candidates who can be asked to provide blood specimens for ongoing laboratory studies.
