Biopsy on the kidney of 5 cases with resistant duration was made and all were diagnosed as mesenteric hyperplastic glomerular nephritis, among them, one with segmental sclerosis, one with segmental sclerosis and crescents in some glomerulus. 13 cases were treated with prednisone, cyclophosphamide and Traditional Chinese herbs. 8 cases with wilfordine adding and/or traditional Chinese herbs. The results showed that 15 of 21 cases were cured, one case perfect remission, 4 cases part remission.
