Summary

Acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis (APSGN) is an immune mediated condition, characterized by glomerular inflammation precipitating kidney dysfunction occurring 7-10 days following streptococcal pharyngitis or 2-4 weeks following streptococcal skin infection. While Group A Streptococcus (GAS) infection is the most common cause, Group C streptococci have also been associated with glomerulonephritis.
