Özet

An 11-year-old prepubertal girl with a history of metabolically poorly controlled.; type 1 diabetes for six years was diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy based on persistent overt proteinuria, hypertension, and renal biopsy findings typical of diabetic nephropathy. This case illustrates that diabetic nephropathy can develop even before puberty when metabolic control of the disease is not sufficient.
