A 6-year-old Yemini boy presented with nephrotic range proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, edema, and hyperlipidemia, leading to a diagnosis of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome. Ultrasonography incidentally revealed a horseshoe kidney. While previous reports indicate the presence of congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract to be a poor predictor of remission in nephrotic syndrome, the present case responded to corticosteroids followed by sustained remission.
