a child male 1 yr old diagnosed with minimal change disease presents with swelling around eyes and over both lower limbs. cholesterol 360 triglycerides 500 . history of upper respiratory tract infection 4 month ago.

whats the prognosis? what r the chances that steriods will respond in this patient.?

whats the chances of relapse in minimal change disease?


a classic minimal change disease has good or very good Prognosis, treated with steroids (prednisone) , pts respond at least 80%. And they have few chances of relapse. But i think you must know this. Is your patient an atypical case or what?


he is getting his first trial of steroid today. so just praying and wishing him luck. thx for ur reply.


oh, it´s a real patient, i didn´t know it. Yes, i wish him luck, too. He is very little. God first, he will be fine. smiling face
