Collapsing glomerulopathy (CG) is a distinct clinicopathological entity characterized by high levels of nephrotic range proteinuria, rapidly progressive renal failure, marked parenchymal injury, and poor response to present therapeutic regimens. Growing awareness has led to the identification of associated conditions other than human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and idiopathic. We report a case of CG from India in a HIV-negative young female, presenting with heavy proteinuria and rapidly progressing renal failure preceded by a febrile illness.
