Abstract

A 70-year-old man developed minimal-change nephrotic syndrome and acute interstitial nephritis while undergoing gamma interferon therapy following right nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. It appears that gamma interferon as well as renal cell carcinoma may have played a role as etiologic factors in this nephropathy. We report this extremely rare case of renal cell carcinoma complicated by minimal-change nephrotic syndrome and acute interstitial nephritis, and present a review of the literature.
