In brief: Group of illnesses

Glomeruli are the little filters in the kidneys and -itis means inflammation.
Since bacteria have nothing to grow on in the delicate little filters, the glomerulonephritis family results from immune injury. They range from trivial non-diseases to devastating processes that will ruin a kidney in a few days. Good luck.
