A patient with the nephrotic syndrome had a renal biopsy specimen that showed typical well-formed mesangial nodules and occasional fibrin cap lesions, as are found in diabetes mellitus. This individual's carbohydrate metabolism was normal by all usual measures. Only after cortisone stress was the glucose tolerance test abnormal. It is concluded that the usual nodular glomerulosclerotic lesion thought to be specific for diabetes mellitus may develop although glucose tolerance is normal as measured clinically.
