Type IV nuclear bodies were found in all renal biopsies obtained from 14 patients with crescentic glomerulonephritis (CGN) and in 8 of 43 control patients studied by light and electron microscopy. The mean ratio of Type IV nuclear bodies per 100 tubular cross-sections examined was 0.67±0.27 for the CGN cases, which was significantly different from 0.09±0.26 obtained for the controls (p < 0.05). Type IV nuclear bodies were most commonly seen in the epithelial cells of proximal tubules but were also seen occasionally in interstitial fibroblasts and cells of a collecting duct and a developing crescent.
