Clinical, X-ray, ultrasound, and laboratory studies were made in 152 patients with nephrotic tuberculosis. Haptoglobin phenotypes were defined in the examinees. Nephorotic tuberculosis was found to occur in patients with haptoglobin 2-2 most commonly. There was a relationship between the carriage of a genetically determined haptoglobin phenotype and a difference in the clinical manifestations of hephrotic tuberculosis. The patients with haptoglobin 2-2 were seen to have more severe hephrotic tuberculosis.
