Brief Answer:
Suggestion on prognosis of congenital nephrotic syndrome

Detailed Answer: what you quote I assume that your kid is having a condition called congenital nephrotic syndrome.

As the kid is already on peritoneal dialysis, she will require kidney transplant expeditiously.

As you have asked for prognosis specifically, I am being XXXXXXX with you. I am extremely sorry -

This disorder often leads to infection, malnutrition, and kidney failure.
It can lead to death by age 5, and children may die within the first year.
Congenital nephrotic syndrome may be controlled in some cases with early and aggressive treatment, including an early kidney transplant.
