1A–F Renal pathology of lupus nephritis (Class I-VI). A, Class I: Minimal mesangial lupus nephritis (no treatment necessary); B, Class II: Mesangial proliferative lupus nephritis; C, Class III: Focal segmental glomerulonephritis (<50% glomeruli are affected); D, Class IV: Diffuse lupus nephritis (>50% of glomeruli are affected); E, Class V: Membranous lupus nephritis; F, Class VI: Advanced sclerosing lupus nephritis (beyond treatment with immunosuppressive therapy).
