Nephrotic syndrome remains the most common manifestation of glomerular disease in childhood. Minimal change nephropathy is the most common cause of the syndrome in children. Despite its initial high response rate to corticosteroids and its favorable prognosis, relapses are common leading to increased morbidity and cost of review seeks to appraise the common triggers of relapse and to highlight the evolving hypotheses about the pathogenesis of the syndrome. Literature search was conducted through PubMed, Google web search and Cochrane Database of Systematic reviews using relevant search respiratory infections and urinary tract infections are the most frequent infectious triggers of relapse. Targeted interventions like initiating corticosteroid or its dose-adjustment during episodes of acute respiratory infection and zinc supplementation are reportedly effective in reducing relapse rates. Hypotheses on pathogenesis of the syndrome have evolved from the concepts of 'immune dysregulation', 'increased glomerular permeability' to 'podocytopathy'.Although development of drugs which can regulate the pathways for podocyte injury offers future hope for effective and targeted treatment, the relapse-specific interventions currently contribute to significant reduction in disease morbidity.

Dear Meagan,
Here’s a fact sheet on the medicine to discuss with your doctor: https:///emc/medicine/21728 It is probably not a negative factor for embryo development based on this excerpt from the article in the link :
Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy, embryonal/foetal development, parturition or postnatal development (see section ). Limited data on the use of amoxicillin/clavulanic acid during pregnancy in humans do not indicate an increased risk of congenital malformations. In a single study in women with preterm, premature rupture of the foetal membrane it was reported that prophylactic treatment with amoxicillin/clavulanic acid may be associated with an increased risk of necrotising enterocolitis in neonates. Use should be avoided during pregnancy, unless considered essential by the physician.
