ABSTRACT:
Good pasture syndrome (GPS), also known as Pneumorenal Syndrome or anti-glomerular basement membrane disease, is a rare autoimmune disease in which antibodies attack the basement membrane in lungs and kidneys, leading to bleeding from the lungs and kidney failure. Currently, the preferred term for both conditions is “anti-GBM antibody disease”. Circulating antibodies are directed against the collagen of the part of the kidney known as the glomerular basement membrane (GBM), leading to bleeding from the lungs and kidney failure. Antibodies also attack the collagen of the air sacs of the lung (alveoli) resulting in bleeding of the lung (pulmonary hemorrhage). Good pasture syndrome is fatal unless quickly diagnosed and treated. (Magalini SI, et al, 1997)
