Tubulointerstitial Nephritis

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) is a cause of acute kidney injury in children characterized histologically by an inflammatory cell infiltrate in the kidney interstitium. The most common causes of TIN in children include medications, infections, inflammatory disorders, and genetic conditions. TIN typically presents with nonoliguric acute kidney injury and may be associated with systemic symptoms, including fever, rash, and eosinophilia. The long-term prognosis is generally favorable, with full kidney recovery; however, some patients may develop progressive chronic kidney disease. Immunosuppressive therapy may be indicated for severe or prolonged disease.
