Glomerulopathy is a type of kidney disease affecting the glomeruli.[1] It typically presents with hematuria or protein in urine.[2]

It results from injury of the endothelium, podocyte or glomerular filtration barrier.[2] It is generally a non-inflammatory glomerular disease, with glomerulonephritis representing the inflammatory type.[3]
