The association of mycosis fungoides and glomerulopathy previously has not been reported to our knowledge. Two patients with mycosis fungoides and recurrent microscopic hematuria underwent renal biopsy, which demonstrated a focal glomerulonephritis with preponderantly mesangial IgA deposition. The possible association between mycosis fungoides and IgA nephritis is reported.
