Acute kidney injury is a term that has replaced acute renal failure in contemporary medical literature, denoting a rapid deterioration of kidney function within hours to weeks, resulting in the accumulation of nitrogenous metabolites and fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base imbalances. This chapter has three goals: discuss the differential diagnosis, etiology, and pathophysiology of acute kidney injury; recognize features of nephritic syndrome and nephrotic syndrome; and cite the various types of glomerular and tubulointerstital diseases along with their diagnosis and management.
