Abstract—Sensitive-Steroid Nephrotic Syndrome (SSNS) is the most common chronic glomerular disease in children with high incidence of relapse. Infections were statistically significant risk factors for recurrence in SSNS. Current findings suggest that procalcitonin (PCT) may not only be a valid marker for infection and inflammation but also a pro-inflammatory cytokine-like mediator. To identify the relationship betweenprocalcitonin and relapse in childhood SSNS. A crosssectional study was conducted from February 2017 to February 2018. Complete blood count, procalcitonin, and urinalysiswere obtained. Data wasanalyzed by chi-square test with P-value <0.05 considered significant. Of all 55 samples, the percentage of relapsing SSNS in this study is 72.7%. On Receiver Operating Characteristic(ROC) curve, the total Area Under Curve (AUC) was 73.6% with P = 0.007. There was a statistically significant correlation between procalcitonin level cut off 0.065 ng / dL with relapse occurrence (P value = 0.002), with a prevalence ratio of8.308 (CI :95% range: 1.993-34.636). Procalcitonin with cut off value > 0.065 ng / dl gave the best accuracy (70.9%), which predicted relapse with sensitivity 67.5%, specificity 80%. The occurrence of relapsingnephrotic syndrome is influenced only with procalcitonin in this study.
