Data were analyzed using SPSS-21. Results Results showed that children with steroids responded nephrotic syndrome rather than frequent relapse nephrotic syndrome, steroid resistance nephrotic syndrome and steroids dependent nephrotic syndrome patients had lower blood inflammatory and higher blood anti-inflammatory markers and there was a significant difference between these markers (P<0.05).
