ARF occurs in 8% of infants in the neonatal intensive
care unit.

• Prerenal ARF
• characterized by diminished effective

circulating arterial volume
• which leads to inadequate renal
perfusion and a decreased glomerular
filtration rate (GFR)
– Evidence of kidney damage is absent.

–Common causes of prerenal ARF
o dehydration
o sepsis
o hemorrhage,
o severe hypoalbuminemia
o cardiac failure

hypoperfusion is reversed promptly,
renal function returns to normal
– If hypoperfusion is sustained, intrinsic
renal parenchymal damage may develop

Intrinsic renal ARF
