In the treatment of nephrotic syndrome if the child is also having tuberculosis should the treatment of both diseases should be started simultaneously?
Expert Answer :
In the face of overt infection, the nephrotic syndrome is unlikely to respond. Therefore I suggest treating the overt TB first and once this is under control, to begin treatment of NS but to continue for the full course of TB treatment.
Answer Discussion :
no tb first.then predni for nephrotic as early predni will increase immunosuppression.
