The pathology of FSGS is divided into four types: tip lesion, peripheral patter, classical type and collapse type. The prognosis of tip type is better than peripheral patter and classical type, while peripheral patter and classical type prognosis are better than collapse.

Non-nephrotic proteinuria patients can have 92% living rate of 5 years and 10 years respectively.

Malignant proteinuria patients may progress to kidney failure within 3 to 5 years.

Proteinuria in nephrotic syndrome patients have 76% living rate of 5 years and 57% living rate of 10 years.
