Membranous nephropathy is one of the common pathological types of nephrotic syndrome in China, which is difficult to heal. Western medicine uses immunosuppressants and cytotoxic hormones to treat this disease, causing many adverse reactions. The paper summarized ideas and experiences of treatment of membranous nephropathy with traditional Chinese medicine in recent years based on literature and clinical research collected by retrieving relative electronic materials and gained a lot of consensus. Literature review shows that there are many research on treatment of membranous nephropathy with traditional Chinese medicine whose curative effect is good and is worth learning. However, the development trend in recent years shows that the combination of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine has certain potential and advantages. There are many reports about the use of low-dose hormonal drugs and traditional Chinese medicine. The combination of traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine for the treatment of membranous nephropathy is worthy of clinical promotion and application.
