Anti-glomerular basement membrane disease, ulcerative colitis, and primary sclerosing cholangitis: link or co-incidence?

Abstract : Ulcerative colitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, and anti-glomerular basement membrane disease (anti-GBM) are three rare immune diseases with incompletely under-stood pathogenic mechanisms. We describe here the case of a 29-year-old man with ulcer-ative colitis and primary sclerosing cholang -itis who, eight years later, developed anti-GBM disease with destruction of all glomeruli leading to end-stage kidney disease. Association of these three immune diseases in the same patient has never been described. Because HLA-mediated susceptibility cannot be incriminated completely in our case, we hypothesize that environmental factors or previous immunosuppressive treatment used might be the link.
