Increased prevalence of acute tubulointerstitial nephritis
Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, 07/11/2012
Goicoechea M et al. – The prevalence of acute tubulointerstitial nephritis (ATIN) has increased in recent years, especially in patients aged >65 years. This could be due to an increase in drug–associated ATIN, which would justify early renal biopsy to identify ATIN and reduce the probability of progression to chronic kidney disease. Although, the authors' data are not able to corroborate this fact.
