Acute progressive nephritis in the elderly

Rapid progressive glomerulonephritis, also known as rapid progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN), was first proposed by Ellis in 1942. Clinically, it belongs to acute nephritis syndrome. It is a group of glomerulonephritis with similar clinical manifestations and pathological changes, but different etiologies. The clinical manifestations are rapid development of the disease, rapid development of proteinuria and hematuria, and renal failure within a few months or even weeks. Glomerulonephritis with poor prognosis. The pathological changes of this disease are cell proliferation and fibrin deposition in glomerular capsule, so it is also called crescent nephritis. Although the incidence rate of this disease is low, timely diagnosis and adequate treatment can effectively change the prognosis of the disease, so it has attracted the attention of the clinic.
