Abstract

The combination of interstitial nephritis and minimal-change nephrotic syndrome has been well described in adults receiving nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. The association of interstitial nephritis and minimal-change nephrotic syndrome has recently been described in 1 adult patient receiving ampicillin and in 1 patient receiving rifampin. We describe an 8-month-old child who developed reversible interstitial nephritis and minimal-change nephrotic syndrome while taking antibiotics.
