Tubulointerstitial Diseases

by Carlo Raj, MD, Mohammad Hajighasemi-Ossareh, MD

Tubulointerstitial disease encompasses a variety of kidney pathology, including acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, and disorders such as acute tubular necrosis and acute interstitial nephritis. Each of these conditions differs slightly with regard to the timeline of its presentation, the patient population affected, and, most importantly, the prognosis and treatment. Understanding the nuances in presentation of acute kidney injury versus chronic kidney disease allows a physician to differentiate between a disorder that lasts a few weeks and one associated with lifelong morbidity and mortality. Recognizing the difference also allows the physician to distinguish between a patient who will need treatments such as diaylsis and one whose kidney function is likely to recover spontaneously.
