jus2234The question describes how he had a strep infection 15 days ago, and now this is poststreptococcal glomeruloneprhitis, which can also be described as proliferative glomerulonephritis +72019-06-03T15:12:54Z
seagullThe question would be too fair if it just said PSGN. Instead we need to smell our own farts first.+282019-06-07T04:47:58Z

nbmehelpFA uses the common nomenclature and the fact most of our other resources use the same nomenclature for this, I think we can agree that is is the accepted terms. If they're gonna decide not to use the nomenclature that most medical students are taught then they should provide their own study materials at that point for us to use. The test shouldn't be this convoluted for no reason. +12019-07-31T02:52:01Z
biaancadbI was confused about this too. Only thing I had to go on is that I wrote down from somewhere that you see papillary necrosis in middle-aged adults and that it's uncommon in children (except those with sickle cell).
Also I'm assuming PSGN is technically a proliferative glomerulonephritis since on FA pg. 578 the definition of proliferative is "hypercellular glomeruli", and for PSGN, you see hypercellular glomeruli on LM (due to leukocyte infiltration). +12019-08-24T16:59:12Z
