This is the first report on the recurrence of a glomerular disease in renal transplant in Hungary. The primary disease of the girl died at the age of 13 was focal sclerosing glomerulonephritis with slight mesangial cell proliferation. The first symptoms appeared at the age of 6.5 and they progressed rapidly. Four years later, because of the severe nephrotic syndrome and chronic renal failure, renal transplantation was performed with the synchronous removal of the patient's own kidneys. In the latter an interesting immunohistological finding has been observed: beside the usual positivities, the basement membrane of the distal tubule at the opposite side of the macula densa showed a strong reaction with anti IgM and a somewhat weaker positivity with anti C3 sera. The primary disease recurred very soon. A mesangial cell proliferation, however did not develop, in contrary to the primary disease, which contradicts the theory that the mesangioproliferative form would be a distinct clinicopathological entity.
