The contrast media generally used for radiologic examination may cause acute renal failure especially in patients with diabetes mellitus, myeloma and/or dehydration or salt depletion1. Some authors2,3,4 have demonstrated that contrast media often cause tubular changes even when renal function is not impaired.
