Table 2 Comparison between histologic parameters of LN-GMT and LN-non-GMT groups*

From: Antiphospholipid antibody profiles in lupus nephritis with glomerular microthrombosis: a prospective study of 124 cases

  LN-GMT
(n = 25)
LN-non-GMT
(n = 99)
P value
ISN/RPS classification    <0.001
I 0 (0) 3 (3.0)  
II 0 (0) 2 (2.0)  
III 0 (0) 15 (15.2)  
IV 16 (64.0) 23 (23.2)  
V 0 (0) 28 (28.3)  
VI 0 (0) 0 (0)  
III + V 2 (8.0) 19 (19.2)  
IV + V 7 (28.0) 9 (9.1)  
Activity index 8 (6 to 9.5) 3 (2 to 5) <0.001
Chronicity index 3 (2 to 4) 2 (1 to 3) 0.004
  1. * Except where indicated otherwise, values are the number (%) of patients or median (25th–75th percentile) as appropriate.
  2. P value for the difference in the ISN/RPS classification distribution between the two groups.
  3. GMT = glomerular microthrombosis; ISN = International Society of Nephrology; LN = lupus nephritis; RPS = Renal Pathology Society.
