In adult age group, the cause of membranous glomerulonephritis (MG) cannot be detected in about 75% of the patients. These cases are defined as idiopathic (primary) MG. MG associated with drugs and other diseases are defined as secondary MG. Penicillamine and gold salts, formerly used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), are responsible for the development of MG. Amyloidosis, analgesic nephropathy, glomerulonephritis and rheumatoid vasculitis can be observed in RA.
