In July 1994, a 70-year-old woman was diagnosed as having nephrotic syndrome with proteinuria of 8 to 10 g/day and a serum albumin level of 1.8 g/dl. She was hospitalized in August 1994 for investigation. The urinary findings then normalized, with urinary protein and occult blood both negative and total urinary protein excretion at 0 g/day. A renal biopsy was performed, and spontaneous remission of minimal change nephrotic syndrome was diagnosed. This is an interesting case involving rapid remission of minimal change nephrotic syndrome in an elderly patient.
