a SRNS, steroid-resistant idiopathic nephrotic syndrome; FSGS, focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis; SLE, systemic lupus erythematosus; APSGN, acute post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis.
b This 4-yr-old boy had sudden onset of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome, initially resistant to steroids but responsive to cyclosporine. Subsequently, the nephrotic syndrome was steroid-dependent and cyclosporine-dependent.
