Acute Tubular Necrosis

(ATN)

From acute tubular necrosis (ATN) is defined as a kidney injury caused by acute tubular cell injury and dysfunction. Common causes include hypotension or sepsis, which causes renal hypoperfusion and nephrotoxic drugs. If the disease does not cause kidney failure, the patient remains asymptomatic. The diagnosis can be suspected if developed azotemia after a hypotonic event, severe sepsis or after drug exposure. Of prerenal azotemia this is distinguished by laboratory tests and response to volume expansion. Treatment is supportive.
