Erythema Multiforme Associated With Acute Renal Tubular Necrosis

Erythema Multiforme Associated With Acute Renal Tubular Necrosis Abstract Recent observations of a fatal case of erythema multiforme associated with acute anuria and acute renal tubular necrosis is described. Involvement of the kidneys in association with erythema multiforme may occur more frequently than is generally realized. This involvement may occur early in the disease and be a major factor in the prognosis. Therefore, a thorough study of the urinary findings should be considered in all cases of erythema multiforme.

Abstract

Abstract Recent observations of a fatal case of erythema multiforme associated with acute anuria and acute renal tubular necrosis is described. Involvement of the kidneys in association with erythema multiforme may occur more frequently than is generally realized. This involvement may occur early in the disease and be a major factor in the prognosis. Therefore, a thorough study of the urinary findings should be considered in all cases of erythema multiforme.
