Abstract

Acute cortical necrosis (ACN) is a rare and unique cause of acute kidney injury (AKI). Though ACN is seen in multiple settings, it is most commonly described in the setting of pregnancy. Usual causes in pregnancy are placental abruption and septic abortion. We report a case of ACN in a pregnant patient who presented with hyperemesis gravidarum. Hyperemesis causing such severe form of AKI has not been reported in literature.
