Introduction: Glomerulonephritis is the most common cause of acute and chronic renal disease. The prototype of acute glomerulonephritis is acute post-infectious glomerulonephritis. Recently, increased cases of glomerulopathy have been associated with bacterial, viral, and other infections. Acute nephritic syndrome is part of glomerulonephritis with an acute beginning, characterized by hematuria, hypertension, edema, and oliguria due to the reduction of glomerular filtration reflected in an increase of nitrogen compounds.
Development: This paper shows a male infant at 2 years and 7 months of age with nephritic syndrome associated to a skin infection, pneumonia, and hepatitis A virus infection.
Conclusion: Acute glomerulonephritis may be associated to streptococcus or another coincidental infection. Children with skin infection, hepatitis A, or pneumonia who reveal abnormal urinalysis, hypertension, azotemia, or oliguria should be evaluated for concomitant glomerulonephritis.
