*Note: The Rheumatology/Nephrology Joint Lupus Nephritis Conferences consist of Lupus Nephritis case presentations followed by renal discussions and clinical comments by rheumatology and nephrology faculty. The goals of the conferences are to educate fellows, residents, and attendings on the topic, provide a sense of "real-life" outcomes of lupus nephritis at our institution, foster collaboration between rheumatology, nephrology, and renal pathology disciplines and ultimately help improve the care of our patients. The cases are selected by Kyriakos A. Kirou, MD, DSc, FACP.
