Glomerular diseases are a diagnostic challenge. Early recognition and timely institution of appropriate treatment are critical to optimum outcome in many patients, especially those with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis. The clinical presentations and laboratory data provide adequate presumptive diagnoses in some patients; however, renal biopsy evaluation is often required for a definitive diagnosis.
