ABSTRACTMantle cell lymphoma is an infrequent type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma with high relapse rates and poor prognosis. Lymphomas can induce kidney damage in several ways, including renal infiltration and the development of glomerulopathies. A case associated to the clinical onset of a mantle cell lymphoma with lymphocytic infiltration into the renal parenchyma and mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis without cryoglobulinemia was presented. This is the first case report that describes this association which evidences the different types of renal lesions in no Hodgkin lymphoma and the value of renal histological study for the diagnosis and prognosis of onco-hematologic diseases with kidney damage.
