Membranous nephropathy is known to be associated with number of autoimmune diseases. Occurrence of PLA2R positive membranous nephropathy with sjogren's syndrome and chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy (CIDP) is quite rare. Role of PLA2R antigen in autoimmune diseases like sjogren's syndrome and CIDP is largely unknown. Choice and initiation of immunosuppression if required may also be governed by the presence of other autoimmune diseases along with PLA2R positive membranous nephropathy
