Type III (focal proliferative glomerular involvement): not more than 50%. in glomerular endothelial cells showed segmental proliferation and focal necrosis, there is a small or medium quantity of urine protein, urine rare, hormone treatment reaction, less occurrence of renal failure.

Type IV (diffuse proliferative type): glomerular involvement over 50%. glomerular basement membrane irregular proliferation, extensive necrosis, severe proteinuria, tubular urine and hypertension, poor prognosis

V (film): a mesangium, basement membrane thickening, but no cell proliferation and necrosis. There is often a large number of proteinuria, edema, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, hypoalbuminemia, hormone therapy between good and bad prognosis changes, eventually developed into renal failure.

Type VI (hardening): glomerular sclerosis, renal failure, poor treatment effect, bad prognosis. The pathological type, each transition and transformation.
