Acute renal failure due to perirenal hematoma complicating open renal biopsy.
Diminished renal concentration and excretion of intravenous radiographic contrast medium are cardinal findings in perirenal hematoma. However, despite a high incidence of perirenal hematoma after renal biopsy acute renal failure has not been described in this setting. A case of oliguric acute renal failure owing to perirenal hematoma after open biopsy of a solitary kidney is reported.
