Acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis
The clinical features of PSGN are varied, with a majority of children presenting with asymptomatic microscopic hematuria. Common clinical features in symptomatic children include peripheral edema, hypertension, gross hematuria with characteristic tea- or cola-colored urine, acute kidney injury, and proteinuria, which at times reaches nephrotic levels.
Children typically have a good prognosis with normalization of creatinine. Adults may have residual effects of hypertension, recurrent proteinuria, and persistence of abnormal renal function.
