The nephrotic syndrome developed in a patient with mycosis fungoides shortly after systemic involvement by his tumor occurred. Renal biopsy examination revealed atypical lymphocytic interstitial infiltration and changes consistent with minimal change glomerulonephropathy. The patient's proteinuria decreased following steroid therapy. This is the first report of an association between minimal change glomerulonephropathy and a proven T-cell malignant lymphoma. The implications are discussed with reference to the literature. © 1988.
