Acute glomerulonephritis (AGN) is one of the most common renal diseases. They are often associated with infections and can result in diffuse proliferative glomerulonephritis (GN). This case report reviews an interesting case in which renal endarteritis coexisted in AGN with diffuse endocapillary proliferation. The discussion highlights important pathological findings and clinical aspects in acute endocapillary proliferative GN with renal endarteritis. Coexisting endarteritis should be in the differential diagnosis of AGN in patients with persistent clinical courses.
