Abstract

Although there is no definitive evidence that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) affects the kidneys adversely, amongst those who develop severe COVID-19 infection and require hospitalization, acute kidney injury (AKI) was reported. Here, we report the clinical outcome associated with AKI in a 32-year-old man with confirmed COVID-19 infection with no prior history of renal malfunction. The AKI was identified during intensive care unit (ICU) course with the median creatinine and blood urea nitrogen values of 3.1 mg/dL (normal value: 0.6-1.2 mg/dL) and 145 mg/dL (normal value:15-45 mg/dL), respectively. Renal function of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 infection needs to be monitored regularly to intervene as early as possible and to prevent the development of AKI and further kidney complications.
Keywords: COVID-19, Acute kidney injury, Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

In the era of COVID-19 pandemic, renal function of the patients–with confirmed COVID-19 infection–needs to be regularly monitored during the hospitalization time to intervene as early as possible in order to curb the development of acute renal injuries (AKIs). Future epidemiological studies are warranted to determine the cause-effect relationship between COVID-19 and AKI.
