There are various causes of secondary nephrotic syndrome. Finding an underlying etiology in a case of nephrotic syndrome or subnephrotic range proteinuria can markedly alter the therapeutic options and disease course. We describe two cases of secondary nephrotic syndrome. The first case was a 22-year-old male with pulmonary tuberculosis with nephrotic syndrome secondary to renal amyloidosis, whereas the second case was a 17-year-old male with chronic hepatitis B-associated nephrotic syndrome. It is important, especially in developing countries, to be aware that tuberculosis and infections like hepatitis B, C, etc. continue to be part of the differential diagnosis of secondary nephrotic syndrome in adolescents and young adults.
