While I have heard that C3 is lower more often in PiGN than C4, I do not believe you can "hang your hat" on this finding.

F/u on this question: Pt was an 8yo M with 3 days N/V. On presentation had elevated BP. U/A showed 3+ blood and protein. Complements showed low c3, normal c4, and throat cx did grow group A strep, so looks like post strep GN. Thanks for the help!
