Overview of Pathophysiology of Acute Renal Failure

  • Jay Stein

Abstract

Acute renal failure is a common and invariably serious clinical syndrome which can be caused by a multiplicity of etiologic factors. An operational definition might be an abrupt, frequently reversible reduction in renal function usually associated with oliguria. Yet, even this simplistic definition is not totally adequate, since a nonoliguric form of the syndrome is being more frequently recognized.
