Gonococcal endocarditis associated with immune complex glomerulonephritis.Am J Med. 1980 May; 68(5):793-6.AJ
A case is described in which chronic gonococcemia probably resulted in endocarditis, nephrotic syndrome and diffuse immune-complex glomerulonephritis. This is the 11th case of gonococcal endocarditis reported since 1948 and the first report with accompanying immunofluorescence and electron microscopy of the kidney. These studies revealed immune-complex nephritis to be the likely cause of the patient's deteriorating renal function.
