2018-10-18 11:51

Acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) is frequently the result of an allergic reaction. Most cases of AIN are from bad reactions to drugs. More than 100 different medications may trigger AIN. Many of these medications fall into the following categories:


nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are often used as pain relievers

proton pump inhibitors, which are medications used to treat excess stomach acid

Allergic drug reactions are more severe in older adults. They’re also more likely to involve permanent kidney damage in this group.

The causes of nonallergic interstitial nephritis include:

autoimmune disorders, such as lupus erythematosus

low blood potassium levels

high blood calcium levels

certain infections

Nonallergic interstitial nephritis may be either chronic or acute. Chronic forms may last several months or longer. They’re usually caused by chronic underlying conditions.
