Infectious Diseases and Systemic Sepsis and Septic Shock


Andriole Katherine*

Introduction: Numerous bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic diseases involve the kidney. The majority of systemic infections do not involve the kidneys at all; however, in some cases, renal failure may be the presenting symptom and the most significant challenge in treatment. A purely anatomic approach to the classification of infectious diseases affecting the kidney is rarely helpful because the majority of infections may involve several different aspects of renal function. However, individual infectious processes may have a tendency to involve the renal vasculature, glomeruli, interstitium, or collecting systems. Vibrio cholerae causes gastroenteritis, or cholera. Vomiting, severe secretory diarrhoea, and dehydration are the symptoms. Acute tubular necrosis as a result of dehydration or the infection itself can result in severe complications, including electrolyte imbalances and oligoanuric acute kidney injury. However, no cases of cholera with severe proteinuria and acute kidney damage have been reported. This study was therefore conducted. Goals and Intentions The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical features, treatment, and prognosis of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in cholera patients. to link proteinuria and Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) in cholera patients; and to contrast patients with AKI and those with normal kidney function who have cholera. Methods and Materials: Cholera patients were the subjects of this retrospective observational study. Amount of proteinuria, acute kidney injury, and prognosis in cholera patients were gathered. The majority of patients suffered from hypovolemic shock, severe to severe diarrhea, dehydration, and significant vomiting.
