Abstract

Collapsing focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is classically seen in HIV-infected patients and carries a dismal prognosis. It can also occur in HIV-negative patients in which case, early aggressive treatment with glucocorticoids may be helpful with improvement in both proteinuria and renal function.
