We report the case of a patient with infantile nephropathic cystinosis who required renal transplantation at age 30 months. Exhaustive evaluation did not identify a cause of progressive renal failure other than cystinosis. The patient's genetic lesion was allelic with those of other patients with cystinosis; fusion of this patient's fibroblasts with fibroblasts from another patient with infantile nephropathic cystinosis did not demonstrate complementation of the biochemical defect.
