Is house dust allergen a possible causal factor for relapses in lipoid nephrosis?

In three cases of minimal change nephrotic syndrome (lipoid nephrosis), an allergen sensitivity to house dust, cat hair and grass pollen was demonstrated by clinical and biological data. An increase in proteinuria after specific allergen contact and a decrease after withdrawal of the allergens, suggested that the cause was allergenic. Such cases demonstrate the necessity of an etiological investigation of particularly the atopic features in lipoid nephrosis. Results of these investigations can lead to specific therapy in selected cases.[1]
