Tuberculosis (TB)-associated glomerulonephritis is difficult to diagnose that usually presents with hematuria, proteinuria, edema, hypertension, or renal insufficiency, which is similar to symptoms of primary glomerulonephritis. Membranous nephropathy (MN) is uncommonly seen in TB patients. We report a case of a 30-year-old female with Koch’s chest who developed anti-phospholipase A2 receptor antibody-positive MN after initiation of anti-Koch’s therapy and resolved after completion of anti-Koch’s therapy.
