Infantile nephrotic syndrome (NS) with diffuse mesangial sclerosis (MS) is a rare distinct clinicopathologic entity progressing to end-stage renal failure before the patient is 3 years old. Transplantation offers a viable alternative to all otherwise fatal disorder. We report a 15-month-old female child with end-stage renal failure secondary to infantile NS-diffuse mesangial sclerosis type to which she succumbed before renal replacement therapy could be instituted.
