A renal syndrome prevalent in male, mean age of onset 28 years. Characterized by glomerulonephritis associated with haematuria, extensive mesangial IgA deposits (the characteristic pathologic feature), and a variety of glomerular lesions. It is believed to be the most common form of primary glomerular disease throughout the world. The syndrome is now regarded as a form of the Henoch-Schönlein syndrome.
