Abstract

We experienced a case of acute renal failure by oxalate poisoning in a 44-year-old Korean woman. She presented with hematemesis and epigastric pain after drinking of oxalate in a suicidal attempt. After admission, acute renal failure was developed and the patient was treated with hemodialysis. On renal biopsy, there were numerous calcium oxalate crystals which appeared clearly in Hematoxylin-eosin stained sections and were refractile under polarized light microscope. We report a case of acute renal failure by oxalate poisoning with review of the literature.
