    Rapidly-progressive (crescentic) glomerulonephritis Rapidly-progressive glomerulonephritis (RPGN) is a clinical syndrome in which patients become severely oliguric and develop renal failure within a few weeks or months. It is somewhat like nephritic syndrome, in that patients are oliguric – but the rapid loss of renal function sets it apart. post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis.

It is sometimes difficult to reconcile the immediate risks of immunosuppression, in the otherwise clinically well patient, vs. the potential for progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Membranous nephropathy (MN) is an immune complex deposition disease. IgG and complements predominantly deposit beneath the podocytes on the sub-epithelial region of glomerular capillaries. Hence, the sub-epithelial deposits are considered to be pathognomonic for MN.[1] Glomerular basement membrane (GBM) injury due to immune deposition causes podocyte structural damage which results .
