  • Acute renal failure due to postinfectious glomerulonephritis during pregnancy AMERICAN JOURNAL OF KIDNEY DISEASES Fervenza, F., Green, A., Lafayette, R. A. 1997; 29 (2): 273-276


    Acute renal failure is a rare but potentially devastating complication of pregnancy. Among its many potential causes is acute postinfectious glomerulonephritis. We describe a case of acute renal failure during pregnancy, provide the histologic features of the renal biopsy, and discuss the differential diagnosis. Postinfectious glomerulonephritis can present rapidly after clinical infection and cause acute renal failure in pregnancy.
