Here are some...: Pyelonephritis denotes kidney infection usually extended from its hollow part called renal pelvis, but occasionally maybe a blood-borne infection to kidneys. Glomerulonephritis denotes inflammatory change specifically affecting microfilters (glomeruli) & their associated tubules, which usually result from streptococcal infection, autoimmune disorders, drugs, diseases like diabetes or hypertension. ...Read more
Why does in acute glomerulonephritis , specific gravity &urine osmolality increase ?Shouldn't kidneys loss the ability to concentrate the urine?
Leakage of protein,,: This is likely due to the fact that there is failure of the basement membrane to contain large molecules like proteins, etc.. Also in some cases, oliguria can occur, which means anything in the urine can get concentrated even more than it should be. Proteinuria can be almost 3 g/day. ...Read more

Glomerulonephritis: Goodpasture's syndrome is a relatively rare cause of glomerulonephritis. It is caused by antibodies produced to the basement membrane in the glomerulus (functional unit of the kidney) and can cause a severe type of inflammation. Although goodpasture's is a type of glomerulonephritis, not all glomerulonephritis is goodpasture's; there are many other causes. ...Read more
Is it possible for membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis to be caused by mixed cryoglobulinemia?
Yes: This would be indeed one condition capable of causing immune complex deposition in the glomeruli with associated pattern of membrano proliferative disease in renal histology. ...Read more
