GLOMERULONEFRITIS POST ESTREPTOCOCICA PDF

NCBI Bookshelf. Acute glomerulonephritis that results from streptococcal infections is the best-studied immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis. Initially described in the convalescence of scarlet fever, the incidence of acute post streptococcal glomerulonephritis APSGN has decreased worldwide, particularly in developed countries where it is now rare and is limited to adult patients who have debilitating conditions. In developing countries, the annual burden of APSGN remains at a level of least 9 cases per , inhabitants. Glomerulonephritis results from the glomerular deposition of circulating immune complexes and by the in situ formation of immune complexes. In-situ formation of immune complexes is a characteristic associated with cationic antigens that have a charge-facilitated penetration through the polyanionic glomerular basement membrane.

PSGN is a kidney disease that can develop after infections caused by bacteria called group A Streptococcus group A strep. These infections include throat and skin infections like strep throat , scarlet fever , and impetigo. PSGN is not a group A strep infection of the kidneys. It usually takes about 10 days after the start of symptoms of strep throat or scarlet fever for PSGN to develop.

It takes about 3 weeks after the start of symptoms of group A strep skin infection for PSGN to develop. People cannot catch PSGN from someone else because it is an immune response and not an infection. However, people with a group A strep infection can spread the bacteria to others, primarily through respiratory droplets. Anyone can get PSGN after recovering from strep throat, scarlet fever, or impetigo. People at increased risk for those infections are also at increased risk for getting PSGN.

PSGN is more common in children than adults. Developing PSGN after strep throat or scarlet fever is most common in young, school-age children. Developing PSGN after impetigo is most common in preschool-age children.

Doctors can test urine samples to look for protein and blood. Doctors can also do a blood test to see how well the kidneys are working. They can also determine if a patient recently had a group A strep infection. People with PSGN who may still have group A strep in their throat are often provided antibiotics, preferably penicillin.

Most people who develop PSGN recover within a few weeks without any complications. While rare, long-term kidney damage, including kidney failure, can occur. These rare complications are more common in adults than children. The main way to prevent PSGN is to prevent group A strep infections like strep throat, scarlet fever, and impetigo.

Getting a group A strep infection does not protect someone from getting it again in the future. There are no vaccines to prevent group A strep. However, there are things people can do to protect themselves and others. To practice good hygiene you should:. You should also wash glasses, utensils, and plates after someone who is sick uses them.

These items are safe for others to use once washed. Prevent spreading group A strep infections to others. People with a group A strep infection should stay home from work, school, or daycare until they:. Take the prescription exactly as the doctor says to. Top of Page. Section Navigation. On This Page.
