Abstract
A case of renal amyloidosis with crescentic glomerulonephritis associated with rheumatoid arthritis is described. A 60-year-old female with 15 years' history of rheumatoid arthritis developed nephrotic syndrome followed by rapid deterioration of

renal function. Glomerular amyloid deposition and sclerotic change was present in kidney biopsy specimen and crescentic change was found in 85% of the glomerulus. Electron microscopic finding of glomerulus showed randomly oriented, rigid-appearing,

long non-branching fibrils. The patients was treated with intravenous high-dose methylprednisolone pulses combined with intravenous cyclophosphamide followed by oral corticosteroids. Three months after the above treatment, renal function gradually

improved, reaching serum creatinine level to 2.5 ㎎/㎗. But the nephrotic range proteinuria persisted.
