Case Report: Renal Failure due to Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis in a Patient with Murine Typhus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Murine typhus is a flea-borne rickettsiosis caused by Rickettsia typhi. When severe, endothelial dysfunction can lead to acute kidney injury secondary to prerenal azotemia or acute tubular necrosis. Here, we describe an unusual cause of kidney injury during the course of murine typhus–focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.
