Brief Summary:
The investigators are registering LN patients at recruited hospitals and developing a LN database in China. Patients will be follow-up every year, and both baseline and follow-up information will be entered into the registration system.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Lupus Nephritis Other: No Intervention

Detailed Description:
The investigators are registering Lupus nephritis (LN) and developing a LN database in China. Patients' demographic characteristics (including age, gender, height, weight, BMI, smoking, drinking, and education etc.), clinical characteristics (including systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and lab measurements of whole blood, serum, urine etc.), complications, drug information at the baseline will be collected. Patients will be follow-up every year, the demographic and clinical characteristics, complications; drug information of patients will be collected at each visit. We will also record the outcome at each visit, such as mortality (including all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease mortality), end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or serum creatinine doubling. The patient survival and renal survival will be compared using the LN database.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
LN patients
Patients diagnosis as lupus nephritis
Other: No Intervention
Registration of all LN patients in the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University and other hospitals which have signed the contract in China.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. All-cause mortality and cardiovascular mortality of LN patients [ Time Frame: 10years ]
  2. A composite renal outcome of LN patients [ Time Frame: 10years ]
    The composite renal outcome defined as doubling of serum creatinine and ESRD (defined as initiation of dialysis or kidney transplantation).

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
The serum, urine, DNA and renal tissue will be collected.
