Abstract

Sarcoidosis is a chronic multisytemic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. It is relatively rare in children. Renal involvement in sarcoidosis is described less commonly than other organ involvement such as pulmonary, eye, musculoskeletal, and skin. We report a 13-year-old girl with sarcoidosis and nephrotic syndrome. Renal biopsy showed findings of membranous nephropathy. She received intravenous pulse methylprednisolone and oral cyclophosphamide with resolution of the symptoms of fever and edema, and improvement of the proteinuria. Her condition is stable with no progression of her renal disease. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of membranous nephropathy associated with childhood sarcoidosis.
