IgA nephropathy is the most common type of the glomerulonephritis all over the world. However, its clinical presentation is variable, as is the underlying histopathological lesion. We report herein a case of an adult with steroid responsive minimal change disease and IgA mesangial deposits. During the first two weeks of therapy with prednisolone, the patient reported dramatic improvement in his clinical condition and remitted his disease. Unfortunately, at the end of the second month of prednisolone therapy, an acute flare of viral hepatitis was diagnosed. Interes­tingly, the acute viral flare was without a concomitant relapse of proteinuria.
