well from UWORLD..there wa one qs..whete such a thing was asked about PLA2 receptor antibody...they gave explanation that 10-15% of cases of membranous nephropathy are secondary idiopathic..but rest 85% of membranous nephropathy has this antibody..minimal change disease is t cell reaction in the glomerulus and causing flattening of podocytes..thats what UWORLD said..please do correct me if i am wrong:sorry:
