Definition

Chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by recurring hematuria with only slight proteinuria and by deposits of IMMUNOGLOBULIN A in the mesangial areas of the renal glomeruli; It usually occurs in young males; variable severity more severe is Bergers syndrome; cause is not hereditary but unknown; flares with viremias and URIs then remits; renal biopsy diagnostic with iga deposites
