Answer

Acute nephritic syndrome is the most frequent presentation of APSGN. Its manifestations are edema, hematuria, and hypertension, with or without oliguria. Hematuria is present in all cases, and is gross in 30% of cases. Approximately 95% of clinical cases have at least two manifestations, and 40% have the full-blown acute nephritic syndrome.
