Stroke is one of the most severe complications of nephrotic syndrome (NS) which causes severe mortality and morbidity and patient initially presenting with stroke is rare. Here, we describe a case in which an 18-year-old female presented with ischemic stroke as an initial complication of membranous nephropathy (MN). Renal biopsy showed features of MN. This case illustrates that it is important to diagnose MN and anticoagulated this high-risk group of patients before they develop severe complications. There are only a few cases in the literature where the initial presentation of MN is ischemic stroke and it occurs in a young female patient with no risk factors apart from NS.
