Diabetic nephropathy is the leading cause of Chronic Kidney Disease(CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease(ESRD) in India and worldwide. Several forms of non-diabetic kidney disease may superimpose and alter the natural course, prognosis and management of diabetic nephropathy (DN). The causes of Collapsing glomerulopathy are idiopathic or secondary to various forms of glomerular diseases. The association between collapsing glomerulopathy and diabetic nephropathy has not been reported frequently. Here we report a rare case of a patient from Government Rajaji Medical College, Madurai, India with type 2 diabetes mellitus presented with rapidly progressive renal failure. Renal biopsy was indicative of collapsing glomeruolpathy superimposed on advanced diabetic nephropathy.
