A 15-year-old child presented to our center with acute glomerulonephritis (GN) preceded by history of sore throat and fever. He had features of rheumatic carditis and echocardiographic evidence of severe eccentric mitral regurgitation and aortic regurgitation. Renal biopsy showed features consistent with diffuse proliferative GN. Simultaneous occurrence of acute GN and rheumatic fever in the same patient is very rare. He responded to treatment with steroids and renal function recovered over 3 months.
