Abstract: Goodpasture syndrome is a rare autoimmune disease, with significant morbidity and mortality in young people and otherwise healthy population. Complete disease remission is possible with prompt diagnosis and treatment. We report 3 cases with Goodpasture syndrome treated at the Department of Nephrology, University Clinic of Nephrology, with different outcome. All of the patients were with similar clinical feature, with renal failure that needed treatment with hemodialysis. But results of the treatment with plasmapheresis indicate that this procedure reduces morbidity in patients with Goodpasture syndrome. The clinical course and the outcome of the disease were different. The disease is unpredictable, and the early diagnosis and start with the treatment is important for the remission.
