The etiology of most patients with chronic glomerulonephritis is unclear, but if the acute glomerulonephritis is delayed, it can also be transformed into chronic glomerulonephritis.
Clinical treatment of nephritis patients can be long or short.Some patients in the past without any history of nephritis, within a few days suddenly proteinuria, microscopic hematuria, edema, hypertension and other symptoms. The lack of clinical experience of doctors often diagnosed with acute glomerulonephritis, in fact, some patients with a disease is chronic glomerulonephritis, which is associated with the way of transformation of acute glomerulonephritis to chronic glomerulonephritis.
Two cases of acute nephritis into chronic nephritis are as follows:
The first, slow progress or occult progress:Early onset no obvious clinical symptoms, see a small amount of protein or red blood cells only urine, or the patients completely recovered after a few years or decades to find clinical symptoms and kidney damage, and gradually increased until the chronic glomerulonephritis, even for uremia.
The second, rapid progress: At the onset of acute glomerulonephritis after treatment but the clinical symptoms have eased, but progressive disease during the early stage of renal insufficiency, and in a few months to a few years after the development of chronic glomerulonephritis and eventually into renal failure stage.
