Two patients (one male, one female) with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and IgA nephropathy are described. The female patient is the first reported case to have AS and IgA nephropathy concurrently. Contrary to previously reported cases, her renal manifestation preceded her rheumatic symptoms. It is suggested that women with IgA nephropathy and AS may be overlooked as the severity of spondylitis and joint involvement is less than in men.
