Abstract

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) is an uncommon variety of nephrotic syndrome in children which is often associated with hypertension. Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a rare and serious outcome of severe hypertension characterized by acute onset of headache confusion and seizures along with radiological findings. This syndrome has been described rarely in children. We report here a case of a 10-year-old girl with steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome, later proved to be MPGN on renal biopsy that developed PRES due to persistent severe hypertension. She recovered with appropriate treatment.
