Simultaneous Occurrence of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Membranous Glomerulonephritis
Introduction: Membranous glomerulonephritis is commonly described in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and hypothyroidism.
Clinical presentation: We report a case of a 40-year-old woman who presented with a membranous glomerulonephritis associated with SLE, rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Conclusions: The simultaneous occurrence of these three diseases as possible causes of membranous glomerulonephritis is extremely exceptional.
