Full Text


Aim. To evaluate correlations between the course of chronic glomerulonephritis (CG) and the patients
Material and methods. 30 men and 33 women with chronic CG were divided into four groups: group
1 - chronic latent GN, group 2 - chronic nephrotic GN without renal failure, group 3 - chronic
mixed GN including rapidly progressive GN, group 4 - chronic GN with renal failure. Constitution
fell into 3 standard types of diathesis: dyscrasic (DD), arthritic (AD), psoric (PD).
Results. Most of the patients with chronic GN exhibited prevalence of DD symptoms over AD and PD
ones, especially in groups 3 and 4. In less favourable course of GN, DD signs appeared the first, became
more and more pronounced while AD and PD were minimal. In a favourable course of GN
symptoms of AD and PD were as pronounced as of DD or even more apparent.
Conclusion. Constitutional characteristics of the patients are essential for the course and prognosis of
chronic GN as well as for assessment of GN progression pattern and response to treatment
