Author information: Department of Nephrology and Transplantation, Nicosia General Hospital, Nicosia, Cyprus. Abstract Complement factor H-related protein 5 (CFHR5) nephropathy is an inherited renal disease characterized by microscopic and synpharyngitic macroscopic haematuria, C3 glomerulonephritis and renal failure. It is caused by an internal duplication of exons 2-3 within the CFHR5 gene resulting in dysregulation of […]
