Abstract

Tropical acute kidney injury refers to acute kidney injury secondary to diseases prevalent in the tropical region. Factorsthat contribute to poor outcome of tropical AKI include low socioeconomic status, poor access to treatment, and delay in seeking medical attention. Early clinical diagnosis and appropriate treatment can minimize fatal outcome. We report an adolescent with leptospirosis who presented with non-oliguricrenal failure requiring hemodialysis and he recovered.
