A 3-year-old girl was presented with periorbital edema, hypertension, proteinuria, and hematuria. She recovered clinically after 9 days with normal urinalysis. During the follow-up, she developed recurrent episodes of nephrotic syndrome. The kidney biopsy revealed mild mesangial proliferation and a low dose of prednisolone could effectively control the disease.Iran J Med Sci 2005; 30(1): 38-40. Keywords ● Glomerulonephritis ● Nephrotic syndrome ● C3
