D. Bliznakova, M. Zheleva, D. Pavlova

Abstract

Acute renal failure (ACR) is a clinical-biological syndrome of sudden rapidly advancing, commonly reversible damage of renal function when a normal body homeostasis cannot be maintained. In the Department of Paediatrics, Medical University of Varna, 18 children with ACR were treated. The most common reasons for the ACR were the following: acute glomerulonephritis, haemolytic-uraemic syndrome, and severe malformations of the urinary tract. Blood urea, creatinine, ionogram,acid-base balance, and diuresis were dynamically monitored in all the children. Therapeutic behaviour was directed towards the correction of the dyselectrolytaemia and acid-alkaline profile. The elevated lethality rate still persisted. Three patients deceased.
