Abstract

Acute renal failure occurring in a 24-year-old primigravida with eclampsia and HELLP (hemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets) syndrome is described. She also had transient disseminated intravascular coagulation. Hemodialvsis, fresh blood transfusions, and antihypertensive therapy were administered, and resulted in complete recovery. Kidney biopsy revealed acute tubular necrosis.
