Between 1962 and 1970, 36 children with acute biopsy-proven poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) entered a prospective long-term follow-up study. The initial biopsies were scored into four histological grades using criteria based on endocapillary proliferation, leucocyte infiltration, epithelial "hump" and crescent formation; 5 patients had grade-1 (least severe), 14 grade-2, 15 grade-3 and 2 grade-4 biopsies. Two children died from rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis; both had grade-4 biopsies.

The objective of this study was to assess clinical course and outcome of children with congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) who had an attack of acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN).
Renal status including blood pressure, proteinuria and glomerular filtration rate was retrospectively analyzed in five children with CAKUT and PSGN at the presentation and during the follow up.
In the period 2004-2013, 678 patients were diagnosed and recruited in our CAKUT cohort.

The long-term outcome after acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis was studied in 57 patients (52 aged 16 or over) followed for a period of one to 14 years (mean seven years). All patients presented with hypertension, haematuria and proteinuria. The antistreptolysin-0 titre was raised or the serum complement was low in all cases at the initial episode.

In order to characterize the clinical features in elderly patients with poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN), 31 patients, who were both histologically and immunologically proven to be PSGN, were divided up into 3 groups according to age; elderly patients being 55 years or older (n = 7), middle-aged patients being 40 to 54 years old (n = 7) and younger patients being 20 to 39 years old (n = 17). Renal functional impairment as indicated by serum creatinine levels of over 2.0 mg/dl, developed in 4 of the elderly patients and later completely improved at the end of the follow-up period (178.

The long-term clinical course of sporadic, acute endocapillary glomerulonephritis of poststreptococcal type is reported. In all cases, the diagnosis was established by renal biopsies and in most cases by clinical tests. The study is based on retrospective/prospective data from 36 children and 101 adults in the Federal Republic of Germany, Luxemburg, and Austria.
