We describe here the clinicopathological findings in a child with congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS) non-responsive to medical therapy who developed acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD) in both native kidneys after long-term peritoneal dialysis. This case indicates that CNS is a further pathologic condition related to the development of ACKD.
