Nephrocalcinosis and acute phosphate nephropathy with intratubular calcium phosphate crystals, tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis (hematoxylin and eosin stain). . Nephrocalcinosis, the deposition of calcium phosphate crystals within renal tubules and sometimes within interstitium, may occur at any age. Acute phosphate nephropathy typically occurs due to a large load of oral sodium phosphate as part of colonoscopy preparation, and presents as acute kidney injury (AKI), developing in 1 in 1,000 to 5,000 of such patients. Risk factors include dehydration, pre-existing chronic kidney disease (CKD), concomitant use of ACE inhibitors or diuretics, older age, and female sex. Recognition of this entity and change in colonoscopy preparation have markedly decreased incidence of acute phosphate nephropathy. Nephrocalcinosis can also be due to excess calcium, due to either hypercalcemia or hypercalciuria, and may occur at any age. The prognosis depends upon the underlying cause. CKD and even end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) can develop if deposits are extensive and the underlying cause cannot be treated. In patients with acute phosphate nephropathy, serum calcium levels are typically normal, in contrast to nephrocalcinosis caused by hypercalcemia. .

This study by Charmaine E. Lok (@uoft) et al of non−dialysis-dependent and dialysis-dependent patients requiring vascular access found that an upper-extremity ateriovenous fistula (AVF) can be reliably and safely created using a minimally invasive radiofrequency magnetic catheter−based system. 98% of endovascular AVFs were successfully created, 87% were deemed physiologically suitable for dialysis (within 3 months), and 64% were functionally used for dialysis (within 12 months). .

Indinavir nephropathy with chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis, interstitial fibrosis, and lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate (Masson trichrome stain). . Indinavir is an antiviral protease inhibitor that is excreted in the urine, and is insoluble at normal physiologic urine pH. Indinavir toxicity is a classic example of the drug-induced nephrotoxicity seen with several antiviral drugs. Up to 67% of indinavir-treated patients have asymptomatic crystalluria, with symptoms in 8% and nephrolithiasis in 3%. Higher doses, higher ambient temperatures, pre-existing kidney disease, low body weight, lack of adequate hydration, coinfection with hepatitis C virus, and coexisting therapy with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole increase the risk of crystal formation. Crystals precipitate in the tubules, causing acute tubular injury with consequent acute kidney injury (AKI). Patients may also have nephrolithiasis. .
