We describe a 15-year-old boy with acute transient encephalopathy complicating poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis. Based on advanced magnetic resonance imaging, cerebral alterations were related to cerebrovascular autoregulatory dysfunction (ie, a vasogenic edema) and vasculitis was excluded. These insights into the pathophysiology improve patient management and argue against the therapeutic immunosuppression postulated by some authors.
