Patient Mechanism Of Disease Video: IgA Nephropathy

This video defines IgA Nephropathy or IgAN as a rare autoimmune system disease that causes abnormal kidney function. It discusses how the abnormal antibody complexes deposit in the kidneys and lead to leaking of blood or protein in the urine, high blood pressure, swelling in the legs and potentially could cause kidney failure resulting in the need for dialysis or kidney transplantation.
