[Generalized tuberculosis as a cause of renal amyloidosis in a 9-year- old girl].

Abstract

We present a case of a 9 years old girl with generalized tuberculosis diagnosed at the age of 5. Renal amyloidosis was diagnosed 21 months later. Clinically amyloidosis has been presented with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome, which within 15 months led to end stage renal failure. The girl is on automatic peritoneal dialysis with no signs of active tuberculosis up to now.
