NSAIDS Associated with Kidney Disease

Wednesday, 22 October 2008 15:41

Nephrotic syndrome due to membranous nephropathy should be recognized as an idiosyncratic drug reaction to many NSAIDS. In addition to diclofenac and fenoprofen, which have previously been implicated, ibuprofen, nabumetone, naproxen, and tolmetin were found to be associated. Because withdrawal of the drug may result in prompt and complete recovery of normal renal function, a history of NSAID intake should be sought in patients with membranous nephropathy.
