PFAPA is an acronym for periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and cervical adenitis. This syndrome has been usually described in pediatric patients and it generally resolves spontaneously. The endocapillary proliferative glomerulonephritis (EPG) is a glomerular injury characterized by hypercellularity in glomerular lumen and is caused by post-infectious or autoimmune diseases. In this paper, we describe the case of a 35-year-old man affected by PFAPA and EPG. To our knowledge this association has never been reported in the literature before.
