Abstract

Membranous glomerulonephritis is rarely associated with tuberculosis infection. We report a case of a 24-year-old female with tuberculous peritonitis associated with membranous glomerulonephritis causing subnephrotic range proteinuria. Histological examination confirmed both diagnoses. The patient showed improvement with anti-tubercular drugs over six months of follow-up.
