62, years old woman with frequent relapses of MCD. Failed Cyclosporine, complete remission with Rituximab, patient still takes low dose of prednisone 2 mg. Now 6 months after Rituximab proteinuria started to rise but still in low levels, 200mg per 24 hrs collection. Should I give additional dose of Rituximab at 6 months?

Shalom Yael,

If persistent, I might be inclined to see how she responds to a mini pulse of prednisone followed by taper. I am speaking from the perspective of a healthcare system where getting Ritux is not straightforward (Canada).
