Abstract

Drug-induced acute interstitial nephritis is an important cause of unexplained acute kidney injury in hospitalized patients. It can present with nonspecific clinical features, and renal biopsy should be considered for definitive diagnosis. Removal of the offending agent along with early initiation of corticosteroid therapy is the mainstay of treatment.
