Anti-glomerular basement membrane disease

Synonyms: Anti-GBM syndrome | Goodpasture syndrome

A rare fulminant small vessel vasculitis that affects the capillary beds of the kidneys and lungs and characterized by the presence of anti-glomerular basement membrane (GBM) and in its full-blown form anti-alveolar basement membrane (ABM) antibodies. Consequently it may manifest as a rapidly progressive isolated glomerulonephritis (anti-GBM nephritis) or as a pulmonary-renal syndrome with severe lung hemorrhage.
