Drug-Induced Renal Injury
Drug-induced nephrotoxicity contributes to 8 to 60% of all cases of in-hospital acute kidney injury (AKI) and 1 to 23% of cases of AKI seen on the intensive care unit (ICU) (1). The wide variations are caused by different definitions of AKI and different patient populations. Drug-induced nephropathies are often underdiagnosed, and should be considered in every type of renal failure, both acute renal failure and chronic renal failure (CRF).
