Various renal complications occur during the course of neoplastic diseases. The nephrotic syndrome has been reported to occur in patients with Hodgkin's disease even in the absence of amyloidosis, tumor infiltration or renal vein thrombosis, and this syndrome is generally seen during the treatment or relapse of the disease.
