Case report

Abstract

Nephrotic syndrome usually presents with oedema due to fluid accumulation in subcutaneous space. Renal subcapsular fluid accumulation is a rare presentation. We present a rare case of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis which presented with bilateral subcapsular fluid collection and was successfully managed by percutaneous drainage and treating the underline pathology.
