Lobar Pneumonia, Pulmonary Edema and Acute Post Streptococcal Glomerulonephritis: An Unusual Association

Acute Post Streptococcal Glomerulonephritis (APSGN) is characterized by an abrupt onset of edema, hypertension and hematuria. Although the association of lobar pneumonia and pulmonary edema with acute glomerulonephritis has been established, it is uncommon for children with APSGN to present with respiratory distress due to both lobar pneumonia and pulmonary edema. Here we report a 13 years old boy presented with pneumonia, pulmonary edema and glomerulonephritis simultaneously. Antistreptolysin-O titer was positive and he responded well to appropriate antibiotics and diuretics. We aimed to remind the simultaneous and rare presentation of pneumonia, pulmonary edema and glomerulonephritis.
