Focal glomerulonephritis is a form of glomerulonephritis in which only a certain number of glomeruli show lesions, the others being normal. It is a feature of most cases that the glomeruli affected show an involvement of only a portion of the tuft, a change that will be referred to as a local lesion. In general, focal glomerulonephritis can occur as a manifestation of well-recognized entities such as systemic lupus erythematosus, polyarteritis nodosa, subacute bacterial endocarditis, or Schönlein-Henoch syndrome; it can also occur apart from these diseases with a variety of clinical pictures (Heptinstall and Joekes, 1961).
