Nephrotic syndrome in children is an uncommon condition which, similar to adults, has variable response to treatment. Identifying those who may be less likely to respond to usual treatments is important. Linking children who were born preterm or growth restricted to determine whether they respond differently to treatment of nephrotic syndrome will help management of these children. It is another important indication of the importance of the in-utero and early ex-utero environment on long term kidney health.
