Abstract:  IgA nephropathy is one of the most common forms of glomerulonephritis, but the coexistence of IgA nephropathy and psoriasis is very rare, especially in children. Herein we report the case of an 8-year-old girl with both psoriasis and IgA nephropathy who responded to treatment with cyclosporine A for both conditions.
