Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis in the Setting of Transient Renal Insufficiency
Department of Medicine; Fellows and Residents
Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is a rare disease that can present in patients with kidney injury who have been exposed to gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs). These patients can easily be misdiagnosed as having another disease because they do not fit the usual presentation of being on hemodialysis. We report a case of NSF occurring in a patient with resolved transient renal insufficiency and no history of chronic renal disease.
