Rapidly progressive renal failure (RPRF) is an initial clinical diagnosis in patients who present with progressive renal impairment of short duration. The underlying etiology may be a primary renal disease or a systemic disorder Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is a renal disease with an extensive differential diagnosis. This paper reports the case of a 55-year-old female patient diagnosed with Hansen's disease with acute progressive renal impairment after developing lower limb pyoderma Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) in childhood is quite uncommon but is associated with progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in as many as 50% of patients. 1 Several underlying variables contribute to a better prognosis, the most important of which is the presence of poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (PSGN) Rapidly Progressive Renal Failure in a Young Woman List of authors.

Clinical Approach to Rapidly Progressive Renal Failur

Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis is the cause of rapid loss of renal function. It is a rare syndrome but has a high rate of renal failure and morbidity associated with it. Timely intervention is a key point in preserving renal function. This activity explains the epidemiology, etiology, and pathology, along with the treatment options Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) results from severe crescentic damage to glomeruli and leads to irreversible kidney failure if not diagnosed and managed in a timely fashion. Traditional treatment has relied on glucocorticoids and cyclophosphamide, with additional plasmapheresis for certain conditions Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is a syndrome of the kidney that is characterized by a rapid loss of kidney function, (usually a 50% decline in the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) within 3 months) with glomerular crescent formation seen in at least 50% or 75% of glomeruli seen on kidney biopsies The proportion of postinfectious glomerulonephritis in diabetics with rapidly progressive renal failure was over six times that of the nondiabetic adult RPRF population during the study period. Four patients had acute interstitial nephritis and three showed crescentic glomerulonephritis. Other lesions included amyloidosis, atheroembolic disease.

The patient we present developed rapidly progressive acute renal failure with concomitant mental status changes in the setting of treatment with high-dose parenteral acyclovir. Acyclovir therapy was discontinued and an open renal biopsy was obtained to further evaluate our patient's diminishing renal function In patients with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, treatment with pulse steroids, cytotoxic therapy, or a combination may be considered, often after confirmation of the diagnosis by kidney.. Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is defined in Japan as a syndrome that progresses rapidly within a few weeks or months to renal failure and is accompanied by urinary findings of nephritis. The clinical concept of RPGN includes various renal diseases that cause renal function to deteriorate over a subacute course

Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is not a single disease but rather a pattern of disease that a number of disease processes share. It is characterised clinically by rapid deterioration of renal function, nephritic syndrome and severe oliguria. Untreated, it can lead to death within weeks to months. Focal glomerularular necrosis is observed along with crescent Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis types I, II, and III. RPGN represents a wide variety of disease states in which rapid progression to renal failure is seen within days to weeks. 16 They are categorized into three sub-categories: I, II, and III. Type I is an anti-GBM disease, an example being Goodpasture's syndrome

Glomeruli are clusters of small blood vessels in the kidney that allow waste to pass from the blood and into the urine.
