This retrospective review discusses the epidemiology of LCDD and prognostic indicators of poor renal and patient survival in this disorder. Finally, the review addresses the effectiveness of chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, therapeutic plasma exchange, and combinations of therapy on mortality and renal survival.
