Abstract

Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is increasingly common and is associated with long diagnostic delay and high morbidity. We present a 7-year-old child who developed steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome while receiving treatment for tuberculosis. Renal biopsy results showed systemic amyloidosis; culture of peritoneal tissue confirmed disseminated multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
