Proliferative myositis as a complication of rheumatoid vasculitis.
RA is an autoimmune systemic disease, and the most common renal disorders associated with RA or drugs used in treatment such as NSAIDs and disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are secondary amyloidosis, rheumatoid vasculitis, analgesic nephropathy and drug-induced membranous nephropathy, especially gold salt and penicillamine; [sup][2] however, IgA nephritis associated with RA was quite rare and there are no reports of crescentic IgA nephritis secondary to the use of NSAIDs or DMARDs.
