Nephrotic syndrome without kidney injury revealing intravascular large B cell lymphoma


We describe the case of a 64-year-old woman admitted for fever of unknown origin, who developed nephrotic syndrome during hospitalisation and pulmonary infiltrates. Renal biopsy disclosed intracapillary glomerular invasion by intravascular large B cell lymphoma.
