Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education: Post-infectious glomerulonephritis (PIGN) can develop secondary to infections associated with bacterial, viral, fungal, protozoal, and helminthic parasites. Recently, there is a serious concern regarding the occurrence of kidney dysfunctions and subsequent acute kidney injury (AKI) among COVID-19 patients. The outcome data of COVID-19 in neonates and children demonstrated that the fatality rate is significantly higher in patients with AKI than in patients without AKI. In the current COVID-19 pandemic, few instances of glomerulonephritis (GN) in patients affected by SARS-CoV-2 have been reported. In this review, we investigated the PIGN concentrating on the COVID19-nephropathy, as well as its prevention and diagnosis strategies.
