Acute kidney injury in patients with pyogenic liver abscess.


:Incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients with pyogenic liver abscess is rare. In our study we found AKI in 32.6% of patients with liver abscess. Majority of the patients were in their fifties and sixties. As per acute kidney injury network trial criteria, renal failure was in stage 1 in 26.6%, stage 2 in 40%, and stage 3 in 33.3% of the patients. Dialysis support was needed in 26%. All patients except one recovered from AKI.
