Renal involvement in psoriasis is usually seen as mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis (GN), IgA nephropathy, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Microscopic hematuria is not uncommon in a patient of psoriasis with above-mentioned disorders. We found C3 GN as a cause when evaluated for macroscopic and persistent microscopic hematuria in a patient of psoriasis.
