We describe the beneficial effects of treatment with cyclosporin A in a 10-year-old boy with hyperimmunoglobulin E and refractory nephrotic syndrome. The patient was initially resistant to steroid therapy with prednisolone alone. Additional therapy with cyclosporin A was then prescribed, effectively reducing levels of serum immunoglobulin E and preventing flare up of nephrotic syndrome.
