Answer

Epidemic poststreptococcal acute glomerulonephritis appears to end in virtually complete resolution and healing in all patients, and the prognosis is favorable for 95% of children with acute sporadic poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. The prognosis for persons with acute glomerulonephritis secondary to other causes is less certain.
