The ultrastructure and function of the glomerular basement membrane was studied in 44 patients, 4 to 35 months after transplantation. Tissue from 47 biopsies was examined by light, immunofluorescence, and electron microscopy. Glomerular function was evaluated by creatinine clearance, 24-hr protein excretion, and measurement of graded macromolecular permeability with polydispersed 125I polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). The patients were grouped according to observed glomerular ultrastructure. Group A was normal; group B showed slight focal subendothelial deposits; in group C there were moderate to marked subendothelial deposits; in group D there were mesangial proliferation, subendothelial deposits, and infiltration of the lamina densa; in group
