Abstract

Nephrotic syndrome has been rarely reported after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. We report a patient who developed nephrotic syndrome after allogeneic peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for acute myelogenous leukemia. Renal biopsy was performed and immunofluorescence and light microscopy were compatible with minimal change disease. The patient was treated with cyclophosphamide and prednisolone. Complete remission was achieved after three months. Previous reported cases are discussed.
