Recurrence of original disease is a common threat in the field of transplantation. Recurrence of nephrotic syndrome is not common in children with congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS). We report a case of a female child with CNS who presented with nephrotic state at first month of age and became dialysis dependent at 17 months of age. After seven months of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, she received a kidney from a deceased donor. Eight months after transplantation, she presented with a full-blown feature of nephrotic syndrome. She responded well to rituximab.
