Many glomerular diseases may be associated with acute and chronic infectious diseases of bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic origin. In many instances, the glomerular activators are transient and of little clinical consequence. In other instances, distinct clinical syndromes such as acute nephritis or nephrotic syndrome may be provoked. Some of the more important infection-related glomerular diseases are illustrated here. Others diseases, including human immunodeficiency virus and hepatitis, are also discussed in Volume IV.
