Abstract


Interstitial nephritis is gradually becoming a common cause of acute renal failure (ARF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). In order to prevent interstitial nephritis, it is necessary to observe some modalities; understanding risky conditions, detecting patients at risk, and discontinuing the harmful drugs are the main preventive and therapeutic strategies which can be adopted to control interstitial nephritis. Administration of a short course of oral or intravenous glucocorticoids has also been proposed. On the other hand, delayed diagnosis impairs the final recovery.
