- Membranous nephropathy (MN) is the most common primary glomerular disease (PGD) in the world. Currently, MN still lacks specific diagnostic markers and effective treatment strategy. It is speculated that the occurrence of MN is mainly related to environmental and genetic factors. The pathological manifestations of MN patients are diverse, significant differences in response to treatment options, and more reports on young MN patients suggest the importance of genes in the pathogenesis and diagnosis of MN. We will propose a novel perspective on the important role of genes in the pathogenesis of MN baced on the latest research.
