ABSTRACT

The management of patients with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome is difficult. We report our experience on treatment with Mycophenolate mofetil versus Cyclophosphamide, in a retrospective analysis of 54 cases of idiopathic steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome with different histological aspects. The complete and sustained remission rate was 50% for Mycophenolate, which confirm the efficacy of treatment, higher than with Cyclophosphamide (39.53%).
