Abstract

This study includes seventy-five adult patients of Nephrotic syndrome who underwent successful Renal Biopsy in orderto determine the Glomerular pathology on light microscopy. More than 90% patients had primary> glomerularlesions and the rest had secondary glomerular involvement.Focal and segmental proliferative glomerulonephritis ( 3 8 % ) and membranous glomerulonephritis (30%) werefound to be the commonest lesions. Diabetes was the commonest (5%) cause of secondary glomerular lesions.
