Acute GN is caused by 1 of several disease processes, all of which involve immunologically mediated proliferative GN. The classic clinical “nephritic syndrome” consists of the acute onset of hematuria (with red cell casts), proteinuria, elevated creatinine, hypertension, and edema. See Table 28-10 for an overview of etiologies and Table 28-11 for the role of complement testing in glomerular diseases.
