The incidence and aetiology of acute kidney injury in children in Norway between 1999 and 2008.

Jenssen GR, Hovland E, Bangstad HJ, Nygård K, Vold L, Bjerre A - Acta Paediatr. (2014)

Bottom Line: Nephritic syndromes was the major cause (44%) of AKI, followed by haemolytic-uraemic syndrome (HUS) (15%).Nephritic syndromes and HUS are the most common aetiologies of AKI in Norway.Although our results could indicate a low incidence of paediatric AKI in Norway, the lack of other national studies makes comparisons difficult.

fig02: Yearly occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) and share of cases caused by haemolytic-uraemic syndrome (HUS) in children under 16 years of age in Norway, 1999–2008 (N = 315).

Mentions: During the 1999 to 2008 study period, we identified 315 cases of AKI in children in Norway under the age of 16. Of these, 167 (53%) were male (Fig.1). The estimated average annual AKI incidence rate was 3.3 cases per 100 000 children, ranging from 1.8 in the lowest year to 5.2 in the highest year. The median annual occurrence of AKI was 33 cases. The highest occurrence was in 2006, with 50 cases (16% of the total study) and the lowest was in 2000, with 17 (5%) cases (Fig.2).
