Summary of "Infectious glomerulonephritis and pleuropneumonia due to Streptococcus pneumoniae. Pediatric clinical case."

Acute glomerulonephritis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae is a low prevalence pathology. There are several reports communicating different nephritogenic serotypes, however, 6C has been scarcely indicated as such. It is presented the case of a 4-year-old patient who entered Intensive Therapy Unit with pleuropneumonia due to Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 6C and concomitantly developed edemas, arterial hypertension, hematuria, proteinuria, decreased glomerular filtration rate and C3 complement level. Acute glomerulonephritis was diagnosed. His evolution was satisfactory in a short time. This pathology is usually of a transitory and benign course; however, sometimes it can potentially complicate the evolution of a critically ill patient, so it is necessary to have it among the differential diagnoses to consider.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Glomerulonephritis associated with autoimmune disease SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS. Lupus nephritis is histologically classified into 6 classes: class I - normal glomeruli, class II - pure mesangial alterations, class III - focal segmental glomerulonephritis, class IV - diffuse glomerulonephritis, class V - diffuse membranous glomerulonephritis, and class VI - advanced sclerosing glomerulonephritis (The World Health Organization classification 1982).

A febrile disease caused by STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE.

A pleuropneumonia of cattle and goats caused by species of MYCOPLASMA.

A chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly IMMUNOGLOBULIN A in the mesangial area (GLOMERULAR MESANGIUM). Deposits of COMPLEMENT C3 and IMMUNOGLOBULIN G are also often found. Clinical features may progress from asymptomatic HEMATURIA to END-STAGE KIDNEY DISEASE.

A genus in the family ENTOMOPLASMATACEAE, order Entomoplasmatales. It is pathogenic to GOATS, causing caprine pleuropneumonia (PLEUROPNEUMONIA, CONTAGIOUS).
