Diffuse mesangial sclerosis (DMS) is a histopathological finding of a few percentages of children presented with nephrotic syndrome (NS) in the first or second decade of life. It can be an isolated finding or can be associated with some syndrome. Here we report one case of DMS presenting in the first year of life who had a fatal outcome. Early detection of this disease is necessary to draft a management plan and counseling regarding prognosis.
