      Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is a disease of the kidney characterized clinically by a rapid decrease in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of at least 50% over a short period, from a few days to 3 months. The main pathologic finding is extensive glomerular crescent formation.   T1 - Glomerulonephritis associated with other bacterial infections. AU - Kambham, Neeraja. AU - Troxell, Megan. PY - /1/1.

Glomerulonephritis (GN) is a medical condition due to inflammatory changes in the glomeruli, the bed of tiny blood vessels that starts the filtering process in the kidney. It can be sudden onset (acute) or chronic (gradually developing). Depending on the the cause, glomerulonephritis can be primary in that it occurs on its own or secondary when it is due to some other disease.

It can lead to. A 20 years' experience, V. Colombo et al; renal biopsy in the elderly, A. Modesto-Segonds et al; glomerulonephritis among other causes of referral of elderly patients to a renal division.

): Medicine & Health Science Books @ Abstract. Differences in certain immunological markers and their function in the elderly might be expected to translate into a change in the severity or type of glomerulonephritis (‘the elderly’ are those who have attained the age of 60 or more and have biopsy-proven glomerulonephritis).Author: Daniel C.

Cattran. When rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis develops, weakness, fatigue, and fever are the most frequent early symptoms. Loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and joint pain are also common. About 50% of people have a flu-like illness in the month before kidney failure develops.

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) dominant membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) is rare, described only as case reports. We report a rare case of an elderly man presenting with rapidly progressive renal failure and nephrotic range proteinuria with histological, immunofluorescence, and ultrastructural findings supporting a diagnosis of IgA dominant MPGN.

Recent studies have pointed out that the incidence of primary glomerular diseases is similar in the elderly and in younger populations.

The term postinfectious glomerulonephritis has primarily referred to poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis.

When a child has glomerulonephritis (GN), the kidneys don't work properly and can't clean the blood well. Chronic glomerulonephritis: One of a group of kidney diseases characterized by long-term inflammation and scarring of the glomeruli (microscopic structures in the kidney that filter blood and produce urine).

This form of kidney disease usually develops slowly (over years) and may not produce symptoms at the outset. When symptoms and signs do appear, they typically include blood in the urine.

This book examines the clinical, pathological and aetiological factors involved in the common forms o f glomerulonephritis. Each chapter has been written by a recognized expert in the field and provides information of relevance and practical importance to the average clinician.

Glomerular injury leads to impairment of the selective filtering properties of the kidney and reduction in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Consequently, blood constituents normally excluded from the urinary space pass into the urine and are excreted.
