Renal involvement may occur in cases with malignant disorders. Glomerular injury may be the first sign of these diseases and may predict the overall survival. In some cases., glomerular injury may be associated with tumor antigens, and in some others, viruses cause renal injury together with underlying malignant disease. Here we report four cases with malignant diseases and accompanying glomerular injury and review the literature.
