Authors recently experienced a case of acute interstitial nephritis associated with Yersinia pseudotuberculosis infection in 10-8/12 year old boy, who was admitted to prolonged high fever. On 3rd hospital day, puffy face and oliguria were noted. BUN and serum creatinine rose to peak level, 94.1 mg/dl and 10.1 mg/dl, respectively on 7th hospital day. After then renal functions were normal- ized gradually without specific treatment. Agglutination antibody titer against Yersinia pseudotuber- culosis la was 1:320 and renal pathologic findings was compatible with acute interstitial nephritis. So we report here the clinical findings of this case with a brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: Yersinia Pseudotuberculosis, Acute Interstitial Nephritis, Acute Renal Failure
