Abstract :

We present a rare case of Kimmelstiel Wilson syndrome initially presenting with swelling in the lower extremities since 6 months. Based on the findings of edema, high grade proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, and lipiduria, nephrotic syndrome is suspected. A 24–hour urine collection confirms nephrotic proteinuria (5.25 g of protein). A renal biopsy was performed. Histopathological examination of the biopsy tissue showed mesangial nodules (ie, Kimmelstiel–Wilson nodules), diffuse thickening of capillary loops, and glomerulosclerosis.
