Two cases of acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis were found with paradoxically normal results from urinalyses. Three additional cases of acute glomerulonephritis with no proteinuria but with hematuria and one case with transient proteinuria and no hematuria were also found. The pitfalls of diagnosis with these unusual presentations of acute glomerulonephritis are apparent.
