Recurrence of the idiopathic steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome after renal transplantation is reported. The morphologic characteristics of the transplanted kidney, as shown by light and immunofluorescent microscopy, were identical to those seen in the original diseased kidney. In contrast to previous reports, there was no evidence in this case that the nephrotic syndrome was secondary to antiglomerular basement antibody, immune complex glomerulonephritis, or chronic homograft rejection.
