Infection in nephrotic syndrome (NS) is an important cause of mortality and morbidity, especially during corticosteroid therapy. Delayed diagnosis and treatment of these infections can result in some severe consequences. Common infections are peritonitis, meningitis, pneumonitis, and cellulitis. They may even cause abdominal abscess formation. Although literature review reveals abdominal abscesses in NS, multiple loculated peritoneal abscesses are rare in childhood NS. Here, we report a case of multiple loculated peritoneal abscesses in an 8-year-old male child with NS.
