Abstract

.Tertian malaria is endemic in south-eastern Anatolia. As in Europe and America, in south-eastern Anatolia, an etiological agent is seldom identified in nephrotic syndrome. Two patients with Plasmodium vivax and nephrotic syndrome are described here. The possible relationship between Plasmodium vivax and nephrotic syndrome should be explored in children in endemic malarial regions.

Key words: Nephrotic syndrome - Tertian malaria
