ⓘ Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis

Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis is a syndrome of the kidney that is characterized by a rapid loss of kidney function, within 3 months) with glomerular crescent formation seen in at least 50% or 75% of glomeruli seen on kidney biopsies. If left untreated, it rapidly progresses into acute kidney failure and death within months. In 50% of cases, RPGN is associated with an underlying disease such as Goodpasture syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus or granulomatosis with polyangiitis, the remaining cases are idiopathic. Regardless of the underlying cause, RPGN involves severe injury to the kidneys glomeruli, with many of the glomeruli containing characteristic glomerular crescents.
