In recent years, the number of children travelling with their families has increased, due to tourism or to return to their origin country. This fact supposes an increase of medical consultations of this type of patients in the emergency department, which opens the spectrum of possible diagnoses. The incidence of postinfectious glomerulonephritis has considerably decreased in recent decades. In our environment, streptococcal pharyngotonsillitis remains the main cause; however, in children from less-developed countries, it must be kept in mind that cutaneous infections also represent a frequent origin of this pathology. We present the case of an 11-year-old boy who came to the emergency department because of skin lesions and hematuria.
