Acute Glomerulonephritis: A Study of Histo-Clinical Correlation of Patients at Tertiary Care Centre, India


The abrupt development of hematuria, proteinuria, and red blood cell casts is known as acute glomerulonephritis. Hypertension, edoema, and decreased renal function are frequently present in this clinical presentation. Acute glomerulonephritis can occur as a result of a primary renal disease or as a side effect of other illnesses.

The goal of this research was to look at the clinical and histological correlations of acute glomerulonephritis in hospitalised patients.

Materials and Methods: This was a two-year prospective study conducted at GMC Jammu from January 2012 to January 2014.

The study enlisted the participation of 80 patients. A total of 80 individuals with clinically suspected acute glomerulonephritis were hospitalised (AGN). Nine individuals had a positive response to medical treatment. A total of 56 patients had their kidneys biopsied. On further investigation, 10 patients were identified with chronic glomerulonephritis based on renal biopsies and were ruled out. Acute glomerulonephritis was identified in 46 cases after renal biopsies. On histological examination, patients with clinical manifestations such as edoema, hematuria, and hypertension have more evidence of acute glomerulonephritis. The most common entity is PSAGN.
