A 64-year-old man with central nervous system metastases from systemic non-Hodgkin lymphoma was treated with high- dose intravenous methotrexate(MTX 3.5 g/m2). The patient subsequently developed oliguric acute renal failure 12 hours after MTX initiation, and his serum MTX level was 163 mM at 26 hours. Hemodialysis filtration(HDF)combined with direct hemoperfusion(DHP)was initiated at 45hours. Seven sessions of combined HDF and DHP and 2 courses of HDF alone were performed, and the mean MTX extraction rates were 68...

The second part of this in-depth clinical review focuses on drugs used in the prevention of AKI in the patient at risk and/or in the management of the patient with incipient AKI. Among the drugs used to maintain a normal renal perfusion pressure, norepinephrine and vasopressin are most commonly used in hypotensive critically ill patients. The most recent RCT did not find a difference between low-dose vasopressin plus norepinephrine and norepinephrine alone in patients with septic shock, suggesting that either approach is reasonable...

Haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) is characterized by haemolytic anaemia, thrombocytopenia and acute renal failure. We studied the activation state of classical and alternative pathways of complement during the acute phase of Shiga toxin-associated HUS by performing a prospective study of 18 patients and 17 age-matched healthy controls to evaluate C3, C3c, C4, C4d, Bb and SC5b-9 levels. SC5b-9 levels were increased significantly in all patients at admission compared to healthy and end-stage renal disease controls, but were significantly higher in patients presenting with oliguria compared to those with preserved diuresis...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular comorbidities regularly determine renal function. We report a case of acute kidney injury (Acute Kidney Injury Network stage 3) due to an intermittent third-degree atrioventricular block, which had not been diagnosed before. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old Caucasian man with liver cirrhosis due to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and type-2 diabetes was cognitively impaired and had reduced vigilance presumably caused by hepatic encephalopathy and/or Alzheimer dementia...

Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) is an under recognized and under diagnosed cause of acute kidney injury (AKI). It is estimated to account for 15 - 20% of cases of AKI; it is the reported diagnosis in 2.8% of all kidney biopsies, and 13.5% of biopsies done specifically for acute renal failure. Considerable evidence implicates antigen initiated cell-mediated injury in the pathogenesis of AIN. Drugs account for 70% of all cases, with over 150 different agents incriminated. The remaining cases are due to infections, autoimmune diseases, and rarely idiopathic...

Piperazine as an antihelminth has many adverse effects, especially on patients with renal insufficiency. We report the use of piperazine in a girl with a moderately severe kidney disease due to Biedl Bardet syndrome. She developed coma and acute kidney injury due to acute interstitial nephritis (AIN), anemia and thrombocytopenia. The presence of fever, proteinuria, acidosis, anemia, sterile pyuria and non-oliguric renal failure strongly suggested AIN. Her problems abated mostly by discontinuing of piperazine and supportive therapy, except anemia and thrombocytopenia...

We conducted a retrospective study of patients with severe falciparum malaria to determine factors associated with malarial acute renal failure (MARF). We reviewed 262 medical records of adults hospitalized with severe falciparum malaria in Thailand from 2004 to 2008. The incidence of MARF in our study population was 44% (115/262); 75% (86/115) of these had MARF on admission and 25% (29/115) developed MARF during hospitalization. The majority of MARF patients presented in a hypercatabolic state (62%, 68/109) and were non-oliguric (48%, 55/115) or oliguric (44%, 51/115)...

Thirst is stimulated by increases in effective plasma osmolality that are detected by cerebral osmoreceptors located in the vascular organ of the lamina terminalis. However, surgical destruction or organic lesions of the lamina terminalis decrease the sensation of thirst in response to increased plasma osmolality. A 17-year-old boy who was diagnosed with craniopharyngioma at the age of 10 years and underwent tumor resection and gamma knife surgery was admitted for non-symptomatic severe hypernatremia. Although the sodium level was 173 mmol/L and serum osmolality was also high (371 mOsm/kg), the patient did not report increased thirst...

We report the use of vancomycin laden antibiotic cement beads in a patient with calcaneal osteomyelitis who had prior acute kidney injury (AKI). The patient experienced non-oliguric renal failure after exposure to intravenous vancomycin and recovered well after antibiotic discontinuation and adequate hydration. We are not aware of any similar case report where vancomycin laden antibiotic cement has been used in a patient with AKI to vancomycin.

OBJECTIVE: Aminophylline is a methylxanthine with multiple physiologic actions. At low doses, aminophylline can antagonize adenosine and improve renal function via increased glomerular filtration rate. Despite its clinical use, little data exists in neonates for this indication. Therefore, the objective of this report is to describe the impact of aminophylline on renal function indices in a series of neonates with acute renal failure. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective chart review of 13 neonates with acute renal failure who received aminophylline during a 15-month study period...

Patients with haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) may present without significant oliguria. We compared different initial clinical symptoms and laboratory findings in patients who developed oliguric acute renal failure (ARF) with those in patients who did not develop oliguric ARF. Overall, 128 patients with serologically confirmed HFRS were hospitalized at the University Hospital for Infectious Disease, Zagreb, Croatia between January 1999 and December 2010. Clinical signs and laboratory findings were extracted from medical charts, and were assessed for their relationship to the development of oliguric ARF...

BACKGROUND: Non-oliguric hyperkalaemia of the newborn is defined as a plasma potassium level > 6.5 mmol/L in the absence of acute renal failure. Hyperkalaemia is a common complication in the first 48 hours of life in very low birth weight (VLBW) (birth weight < 1500 g) and/or very preterm newborns (≤32 weeks gestational age). OBJECTIVES: To determine the effectiveness and safety of interventions for non-oliguric hyperkalaemia [for the purpose of this review defined as serum potassium > 6...

BACKGROUND: Estimating the dialysis dose is a requirement commonly used to assess the quality of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In patients with acute kidney injury (AKI), this value is not always evaluated and it has been estimated that the prescribed dose is seldom obtained. Reports addressing this issue in AKI individuals are scarce and most have not included an adequate number of patients or treatments, nor were patients treated with extended therapies...
