Abstract

Abstract The differential diagnosis of acute and chronic glomerulonephritis includes a wide variety of organic renal and vascular diseases together with some of the functional causes of proteinuria. The modern clinician can improve his diagnostic accuracy and therapy by proper integration with the laboratory. The most important advances in this field have come from improved examination of the urinary sediment, better bacteriologic studies, more widespread use of serologic techniques such as the antistreptolysin titer and measurement of serum complement, more frequent testing of discrete renal functions, and the recent introduction of renal biopsy, which permits invaluable correlation between clinical findings, function, and histology. These laboratory aids supplement but will never supplant keen observation and the continued delineation of the natural history of glomerulonephritis.
