Abstract

Acute kidney injury presents a wide differential of potential causes, including glomerular, tubular, and interstitial processes. Often a careful history, physical exam, and laboratory evaluation are sufficient to make a diagnosis. However, a kidney biopsy is sometimes necessary to make or confirm the diagnosis or stage the level of disease. Because therapies vary from conservative medical care to aggressive immunosuppression, a definitive diagnosis from a kidney biopsy can direct and improve care. The purpose of this chapter is to review the indications, contraindications, various modalities, and complications associated with a renal biopsy. Special emphasis is placed on strategies to lower the risk of adverse events in critically ill patients. The diagnosis and management of various diseases commonly diagnosed by kidney biopsy are also discussed.
