In a 6 year period (1984-1989) we have had the opportunity to take care of five patients who had nephrotic syndrome and became pregnant. Four of them had mesangial proliferative glomerulonephritis while one had focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. Four of the pregnancies went to term while one was terminated at 34 weeks gestation because of deteriorating renal function in the mother. All the pregnancies ended in delivery of normal babies. However, two patients have since died of end stage renal disease, while the remaining three continue to be nephrotic with reduced levels of renal function following the deliveries.
