An exceptional case of acute renal failure: is there a renal toxicity of Artemisia herba-alba?



An exceptional case of acute renal failure: is there a renal toxicity of Artemisia herba-alba?



Renal Failure 32(8): 1009-1011



A 59-year-old diabetic man was admitted for severe acute renal failure. Clinical signs were compatible with an acute tubular necrosis but no etiology was found. Kidney biopsy showed an osmotic nephrosis. Resumption of interrogatoire reveals consumption of Artemisia herba-alba accused in very few experimental studies to cause a lesion indicative of osmotic nephrosis.
