Insect stings belonging to Hymenoptera defined as wasps, yellow jackets, bees, or hornets by humans. Hymenoptera stings may result in a wide range of clinical spectra ranging from localized pain to systemic reaction and organ dysfunction and multiple organ failure. We report a patient with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) which is immune secondary to a stimulus, which can also be added to the onset of secondary MPGN.
