          Abstract

          A 54-year-old woman presented proteinuria and severe hyperlipoproteinemia, She had type III hyperlipoproteinemia with the phenotype E2/2. Renal biopsy specimen revealed lipoprotein thrombi within the glomerular capillary lumina without tubulointerstitial lesion and deposition of IgA in the mesangium and peripheral capillary loops, indicating lipoprotein glomerulopathy with IgA nephropathy. Treatment with probucol resulted in the improvement of both hyperlipoproteinemia and proteinuria with the disappearance of the lipoprotein thrombi in the glomerular capillary without any change in the mesangial IgA deposition. The data suggest that probucol may be effective against the early stage of lipoprotein glomerulopathy with less lipoprotein thrombi and without tubulointerstitial damage.
