In brief: Expected condition

Nephrosis means a loss of protein in the urine; protein normally helps fluid stay in the blood vessels, but when blood protein (mostly albumin) is low, fluid leaks out into the soft tissues.
Periorbital edema is commonly noted in this setting, particularly after lying down for several hours. Effective treatment of the cause of nephrosis usually resolves this issue.
