The present case study is on a 16-year-old woman who was suffering from nephritic syndrome after recovery from complete type of hydatiform mole. She admitted in hospital because of proteinurea and hematuria. In her past medical history she had a suction curettage for hydatiform mole. After she received 4 courses chemotherapy, she completely recovered and βhCG has fallen from 1980 IU/L to under 10 IU/mL. Then she showed generalized edema, proteinurea and hematuria compatible with nephritic syndrome. After six courses chemotherapy the symptoms of nephrotic syndrome and invasive mole diminished, she released from hospital and scheduled for follow-up.
