Prednisone therapy at 1 mg/kg/day was instituted in five patients with FSGS associated with positive HIV, CD4 counts less than 200 and mean serum creatinines of 11.2 mg/dl. Two of the three hemodialyzed patients failed to respond, one patient's serum creatinine stabilized, and two patients had reductions in serum creatinines and degrees of nephrotic proteinuria. The one patient who had a repeat biopsy showed improved histopathologic features. The true benefit of prednisone therapy in these patients remains unclear. (Krane)
