Glomerulopathy With Fibronectin Deposits 1; Gfnd1


Glomerulopathy with fibronectin deposits (GFND) is a genetically heterogeneous autosomal dominant disorder characterized clinically by proteinuria, microscopic hematuria, and hypertension that leads to end-stage renal failure in the second to fifth decade of life. Pathologic examination shows enlarged glomeruli with mesangial and subendothelial fibrillary deposits that show strong immunoreactivity to fibronectin (FN1 ) (Castelletti et al., 2008). Genetic Heterogeneity of Glomerulopathy with Fibronectin DepositsThe GFND1 locus maps to chromosome 1q32. See also GFND2 (OMIM ), which is caused by mutation in the FN1 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 2q35.
