nekm Genome sequence of a Lancefield group C Streptococcus zooepidemicus strain causing epidemic nephritis: Incidental healed postinfectious glomerulonephritis: If infection is present at the time of diagnosis, it should be treated. It is important to first exclude infectious diseases and malignancies. Preparation procedure Creating evidence-based guidelines first requires the enormous task of gathering and evaluating evidence.

In patients with ANCA-positive RPGN, the combined use of corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents is currently recommended as the standard therapy, and there are no randomized controlled trials RCTs that compared treatment with and without corticosteroids.
