Abstract

Postinfectious glomerulonephritis continues to be the most common cause of acute glomerulonephritis in children. Although in the past it was considered to be mainly a complication of streptococcal infections, today it is well known that infection with many other pathogens may trigger an immune response that results in glomerular injury. Most children with postinfectious glomerulonephritis have an excellent prognosis with complete recovery of renal function and no recurrence. This article summarizes the history, presentation, evaluation, differential diagnosis, and management of children with postinfectious glomerulonephritis.
