    Abstract

    Introduction and Aims: Acute tubulo-interstitial nephritis (ATIN) is a common and reversible cause of acute kidney injury (AKI). Recent evidence suggests that the incidence of ATIN is increasing. The aim of this multicentre retrospective study was to compare renal outcomes in patients with biopsy proven ATIN treated with corticosteroids and those managed conservatively.
