Answer

Anti-GBM disease is an uncommon disorder. The incidence of anti-GBM disease is estimated to be 0.5-1.8 cases per million per year in both European white and Asian populations. It is responsible for 1-5% of all types of glomerulonephritis and for 10-20% of crescentic glomerulonephritis. [17, 18]
