Abstract
Introducción: las glomerulonefritis con depósitos exclusivos de la fracción C3 del complemento (GN-C3) pueden implicar alteración en la vía alterna de este. Objetivos: describir retrospectivamente una serie de casos de GN-C3 y determinar la frecuencia con que los pacientes continúan con alteraciones renales y/o hipocomplementemia. Métodos: se evaluaron las características histológicas y clínicas y la evolución de los 22 casos de GN-C3 diagnosticados entre 2004 y 2012 en el Departamento de Patología (Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de Antioquia). Resultados: 14 de los pacientes fueron niños y 12 fueron hombres; la mediana de edad fue de 13 años (rango: 3-65). D...
