This study draws attention to a group of 6 patients who have diffuse proliferative lupus nephritis but in whom the renal histology is characterized by diffuse exudation and mesangial cell proliferation. This group of patients showed healing of the histological lesion in all cases although two of the patients died from non-renal causes. The authors conclude that this histological picture indicates a good prognosis in lupus nephritis.
