abstract

  • Previous reports have noted an association between membranous nephropathy and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis with Guillain-Barre syndrome. We report a case of Campylobacter enteritis, which was complicated by both focal segmental glomerulosclerosis of the collapsing variety and Guillain-Barre syndrome, and propose that Campylobacter may be the common link between the glomerular disease and Guillain-Barre syndrome. We also briefly review previous reports of kidney disease associated with Campylobacter infection.
