Dear Karen, Welcome to HealthcareMagic!
MPGN type II is 'membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis' [also known as 'mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis']. It is a type of glomerulonephritis [ie., inflammation of glomeruli of kidney] caused by deposits in the kidney glomerular mesangium and basement membrane (GBM) thickening, which activate complement and damage the glomeruli [glomeruli are functional unit
of kidneys]. It is a common cause cause of nephrotic syndrome
in children [Nephrotic syndrome is a disorder in which the kidneys are damaged, causing them to leak large amounts of proteins
from the blood into the urine]. Spontaneous remissions of MPGN type II are not common & approximately half of those affected with MPGN II will progress to end stage renal disease
within 10 years. Therefore prognosis of this condition is not very good. I advice you to consult a good pediatric nephrologist
for your daughter.
