A patient with acute renal failure from interstitial nephritis resulting from oral oxacillin therapy is described. Renal failure was associated with mild albuminuria, leukouria, microscopic hematuria and renal tubular cells in the urine. Eosinophilia was present but there was no associated fever or rash. Renal biopsy showed interstitial nephritis with mononuclear cells, eosinophils and plasma cells. Mononuclear cells were seen within tubules and often formed intratubular granulomata.
