Nephrotic Syndrome is characterized by Proteinuria  (> 40 mg per square meter body surface area per hour in children),  Hypoalbuminemia  (< 2.5 g/dl), Hyperlipidaemia, and  edema that begin with face. One diagnosed case of Nephrotic syndrome was reported in Out Patient department (OPD). Patient reported frequent/ common relapses and most relapses were surfaced whenever steroids were discontinued/tapered. Ayurvedic medications such as Gokshur gugglu, Punarnavasav, Vrikkdoshantak syrup (kudos pharma), Syp. Indukantam (Kottakal), Giloy Swaras were started showed mixed effects (relapse were there but frequency reduced). Meanwhile patient complained cough up on taking food/milk and loss of appetite along with other relapsing features (urine albumin +++). We added Agnitundi Vati (4 mg/kg) for decreased appetite and cough, suspecting problem in swallowing along with other medication for relapse. Features like swelling over face got relief but surprisingly protein in urine (proteinuria) was absent within 2-3 days which was earlier possible only after steroid restart. We advised Agnitundi Vati (4 mg/kg) for every next relapse and saw same results. Here we are reporting case of Nephrotic Syndrome which is under treatment showing/sustaining results in proteinuria and other features like hyperlipidemia and general condition.

Key words: Nephrotic Syndrome, Protienuria, Agnitundi Vati, Hyperlipidemia.
