A 17-year-old boy developed proteinuria nine years after he underwent a Potts-Smith-Gibson procedure as treatment for hypoplastic right ventricle, pulmonary stenosis, and tricuspid atresia. The only abnormality found to account for the proteinuria was glomerulomegaly, a benign lesion previously undescribed in living subjects.
