Primary or idiopathic membranous nephropathy (MN) is distinctive and one of the most common causes of nephrotic syndrome in adults. It is quite prevalent in all races and has no gender predisposition. However, white adults are at more risk of MN. It is a relatively less common entity in pediatric population. We report a case of 12 years old female with idiopathic MN. She had no symptoms suggestive of nephrotic syndrome and was normotensive. She had incidental finding of proteinuria which was investigated, and renal biopsy revealed the features of MN.
