    Four patients with idiopathic membranous glomerulonephritis, heavy proteinuria and progressive renal failure received azathioprine and prednisolone. Renal function improved in all four and proteinuria declined sharply in three. We suggest that treatment with azathioprine and prednisolone may be of benefit in this form of idiopathic membranous glomerulonephritis.
