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 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.

193 patients (142 adults and 51 children) with acute PSGN were followed long term. Sixty percent had elevated serum creatinine and 14% had nephrotic range proteinuria at the onset. By two years 28 patients (14%) had died from uremia, and 19 were lost to follow up.

In 1968 there was an epidemic outbreak of acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis in Maracaibo during which 384 cases were hospitalized. Of these cases, 120 were recalled in 1974 and the results of their investigations were reported. The present work concerns 71 patients from this group followed for 11-12 years and studied with measurement of creatinine clearance (CCr), protein excretion and urine sediment analyses.
