The majority of patients with IgA nephropathy are asymptomatic. Some patients with IgA nephropathy may develop intermittent gross hematuria which is often termed as synpharyngitic hematuria, because it occurs after the episodes of bacterial tonsillitis or viral URTI's. The patient may also have a positive history of flank pain, low grade fever.
