TAFRO syndrome with renal biopsy successfully treated with s
A 61-year-old woman, with a history of Sjogren’s syndrome, was admitted to our hospital with anasarca and abdominal distension. Based on the clinical course and various laboratory findings, we diagnosed TAFRO syndrome. Renal biopsy revealed thrombotic microangiopathy, including endothelial cell swelling, subendothelial space expansion, and mesangiolysis. She was treated with oral prednisolone and cyclosporine, with a consequent resolution of anasarca, pleural effusion, and ascites, and improvement in renal function and urinary findings. The patient’s platelet count also normalized after 2 months of treatment.
