We report a case of membranous nephropathy with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). A 76-year-old Japanese man had been treated for PBC and was referred to our department because of acute severe proteinuria (10 g/day). Renal biopsy was performed and was compatible with a diagnosis of membranous nephropathy. The patient was treated with cyclosporine A (CsA; Neoral®), which was followed by normalization of liver function and partial remission of proteinuria (0.68 g/day) within six months without any significant side effects. This case suggests that CsA monotherapy is effective for the treatment of both liver dysfunction and membranous nephropathy associated with PBC.
