Kidney disease and cancer are connected in both direction. Some of glomerulopathies, tubulo- intersticial and
vascular renal diseases can early signal the presence of an underlying cancer. Solid tumors are associated with
membranous nephropathy, whereas Hodgkin’s lymphomas are associated with minimal change disease. The most
common neoplasia associated with paraneoplastic glomerular disease are carcinomas of the lung and of the gastrointestinal
tract. Nephrotic syndrome is the most common presentation of paraneoplastic glomerulopathy. The primary
treatment must be directed at the cancer. In patients with cancer – associated glomerulopathy, there is a strong
relationship between clinical remission of glomerulopathy and clinical remission of cancer.
