The renal affectation is infrequent in scleroderma, unlike other collagen diseases. The appearance of nephrotic syndrome has been related to the drug use, specially the D-penicilamine, or rarely as a manifestation of secondary amilodosis, quite infrequent in scleroderma. We report a case of nephrotic syndrome in a patient with systemic scleroderma, produced by a membranous glomerulonephritis, exceptionally described in literature.
