A case of prefibrotic myelofibrosis with immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis is presented. A 45-year-old female, with history of right subclavian and axillary vein thrombosis, presented with abdominal distension, facial puffiness, and pedal edema. Evaluation revealed deranged renal functions with nephrotic range proteinuria and acute kidney injury. JAK2 mutation evaluated in view of portal vein thrombosis and splenomegaly was positive. Renal biopsy revealed mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis with full house immune complex deposition on direct immunofluorescence (DIF). The patient had no signs or symptoms of systemic lupus erythematosus and serological markers for autoimmune or collagen vascular disease were negative. Renal involvement in myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) is uncommon and histological patterns of DIF negative mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, and immunoglobulin A nephropathy have been reported.
