HIV-associated nephropathy (HIVAN) has been reported in HIV-infected adults. HIVAN in children has not been described previously from the Indian subcontinent though we had reported earlier about non-nephrotic range proteinuria in HIV-infected children and their response to antiretroviral therapy (ART). We now report two children with HIV and nephrotic range proteinuria who demonstrated proliferative glomerulonephritis and mesangial hyperplasia, respectively.
