Abstract

Focal segmental sclerosis (FSGS) is a common cause of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome in the adult population. A patient aged 48- year-old was admitted for evaluation of azotemia. Renal biopsy showed tip lesion FSGS and acute tubular necrosis. After methyl prednisolone pulse therapy, partial remission occurred, and he was stable with oral prednisolone and cyclosporine. Few months later two serious complications including lung and brain abscess occurred. We describe a case of FSGS with lung and brain abscess, who responded to medical management.
