Acute Kidney Injury in Children

Acute kidney injury is the abrupt loss of kidney function that results in a decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR), retention of urea and other nitrogenous waste products, and dysregulation of extracellular volume and electrolytes. The incidence of Acute Kidney Injury in Children appears to be increasing. Genetic Factors may predispose some children to AKI. Children who have suffered Acute Kidney Injury are at risk for late development of kidney disease several years after the initial insult. Improved understanding of the pathophysiology of AKI, early biomarkers of AKI, and better classification of AKI are needed for the development of successful therapeutic strategies for the treatment of AKI.
