• A patient with chronic myelogenous leukemia was initially seen with nephrotic syndrome. Minimal-change glomerulonephritis was verified by open renal biopsy, and the patient showed good response to treatment with a diuretic and prednisone. We believe this represents the first reported case of nephrotic syndrome in myelogenous leukemia.
