The development of the nephrotic syndrome during pregnancy is an uncommon occurrence (1, 2). We have recently observed a young primigravida who developed severe pre-eclampsia with massive proteinuria which was followed by the classic features of the nephrotic syndrome. Detailed observations of this patient, including serial renal function studies and renal biopsies during her pregnancy and for 1 year post partum, form the basis of this report. This is the second report of a case of histologically proven pre-eclamptic nephropathy leading to the nephrotic syndrome, the first having been reported by Hopper and associates (3).
