Abstract

Alports' syndrome (hereditary nephritis with deafness), is an uncommon disease and is seen very infrequently in India. We report a fatal case in a young girl with characteristic ultrastructural changes in the kidney thus emphasising the exception noted in the observation that females have a better prognosis compared to males.
