We report on a 16-year old female patient with biopsy proved minimal change disease and steroid state. She was subsequentlygiven cyclosporin for varying periods of time with inadequate response. She developed four episodes of acute renal failure in the background of severe nephrotic state, 10 years after the onset of her illness. Three of these episodes could be reversed with albumin infusion and judicious use of diuretics while the fourth necessitated six sessions of ultrafiltration. In none of the episodes of ARF could we find any cause other than the nephrotic state itself.
