To the Editor,

Having previously published my views that allergy, milk allergy in particular, is a cause of relapsing nephrotic syndrome in children, [1],[2] and that accordingly, only after suitable investigation should cyclophosphamide be given for this condition, I note the article by Dr. Mazin Shigidi [3] on relapsing minimal change in adults.

Unfortunately, one needs an organized clinical and laboratory immunology service to do justice to these patients. As an immunologist, I see no reason to think that the possible etiology will differ in adults from children. However, in an environment like Khartoum, there must be various tropical allergens to be considered.
