Abstract: We present the case of a 29-year-old type 1 diabetic patient with the diagnosis of acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis. The incidence of this textbook example of acute glomerulonephritis has dropped dramatically in the developed world during the past decades due to the more widespread use of antibiotics. However, the present case illustrates that it is not an extinct disease and that clinicians should be aware of this entity. Particular attention is needed for the fact that the clinical context in which the disease occurs may be different from the classical "post-angina" presentation.
