Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is a significant renal disease characterized by >3 g/day proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia and hyperlipidemia. Although there are many causes in its etiology, hypertriglyceridemia together with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is rarely encountered. In this case report, we aimed to discuss a case who presented to our clinic with lipemic pancreatitis and was found to have nephrotic syndrome associated with concurrent focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.
