Abstract
Congenital nephrotic syndrome is an uncommon disorder, which is caused by a heterogenous group of renal diseases with variable etiology and natural history. It may be inherited, sporadic, acquird or a part of a general malformation syndrome. This disorder has no single or pathological feature for pathognomonic finding, and there is no ultimate curative treatment except renal transplantation. We experienced a case of congenital nephrotic syndrome in a 4 month old boy who was admitted due to generalized edema and periorbital edema. The boy was diagnosed as congenital nephrotic syndrome, which was confirmed by clinical manifestations, laboratory data, and pathologic findings. This case is discussed with a review of the literature associated with congenital nephrotic syndrome.
Key Words: Congenital Nephrotic Syndrome, Minimal change
