8yr old boy with cochlear implant since age of three. Referred about 3 months ago with protenuria and renal failure. However mum had noted frothy urine for quite a long time. No family history of renal failure or hearing loss. No hematuria. Renal biopsy : light microscopy(1 glom repeat biopsy) global glomerular ischaemic-like changes, focal segmentalsclerosing glomerular lesion on EM, chronic interstitial nephritis, diffuse in distribution and of at least moderate intensity.

In very young children, the EM findings might not manifest. Was immunostaining for Type IV collagen performed?
