One of the symptoms of glomerular damage is proteinuria and nephrotic syndrome, which can be primary or secondary. Secondary nephrotic syndrome is followed by systemic diseases, malignancies, drugs, and a variety of infectious diseases. In the recent Coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic, a wide range of organ involvement has been reported, including, kidneys, cardiovascular, endocrine, and nervous systems, mostly in adults and less reported in children. Our patient was an 11-year-old child with COVID-19 who presented with diabetic ketoacidosis and developed proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome, and renal failure during the course of the disease and mild respiratory symptoms appeared at the end of the illness.
