Abstract

Membranous nephropathy (MN) and polycystic kidney disease are both relatively rare diseases in children. On rare exceptions, these two conditions have been associated in adults. We report here the first case of a pediatric patient with this association. This 6-year-old child presented with gross hematuria, nephrotic syndrome, and mild renal failure. A renal ultrasound subsequently revealed that the patient also had polycystic kidney disease.
