C1q nephropathy is a very uncommon form of glomerular disease and the presentation usually coincide with nephrotic syndrome. The histological patterns of C1q nephropathy broadly divided into minimal change disease, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, and immune-mediated proliferative glomerulosclerosis. Here, we are presenting an interesting case of C1q nephropathy in young female who achieved complete remission on low-dose corticosteroid therapy. Corticosteroids, according to the body weight, are the mainstay of treatment. Some patients who do not tolerate, a low dose of steroid may be used. It is found to be resistant in most of the cases and other immunosuppressant is reserved for such cases.
