COVID pandemic affected every individual across the world. Patients with primary glomerular disease and glomerular disease secondary to systemic diseases who are on moderate to high doses of immunosuppression are at an increased risk of COVID because of their immunosuppressed state. The data to quantify the degree of risk in relation to the amount of immunosuppression or their duration of use is not robust. The patients on immunosuppression need to modify the drugs balancing the risk relapse and flare of the disease, simultaneously minimizing the risk of developing COVID. We tried to develop a guideline about the modification of the treatment regimen in such conditions.
