The primary cause of nephropathy in idiopathic multicentric osteolysis is as yet unknown. We report a young girl with idiopathic multicentric osteolysis and nephropathy. An abnormal glomerular basement membrane was the only abnormality found in a renal biopsy taken 2 years before the development of end-stage renal failure. We believe that this biopsy finding represents or is related to the unknown primary lesion causing nephropathy in idiopathic multicentric osteolysis.
