COVID strikes again: RPGN from the vaccine?
An 86-year-old woman has new onset vasculitis that is MPO positive with crescentic GN shortly after receiving the Moderna mRNA COVID vaccine. While de-novo and relapsing minimal change disease as well as IgA nephropathy appears to be well established after COVID vaccination, what about the other less common glomerulopathies? The goal is to get everyone vaccinated, so how do you make the association? Is the treatment any different from non-vaccination related GN? What do you think?
