Abstract:

Infection Related Glomerulonephritis (IRGN) is an immune complex mediated renal injury occurring simultaneously with the infection. Although Streptococcus and Staphylococcus species are among the leading cause of IRGN noted till date, there are new emerging cases which found that Rickettsial infection can also cause IRGN. Scrub typhus is a rickettsial infection caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi which can have multisystem involvement and varied clinical presentations. Here we are presenting a case of 9-year female child who developed Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) with features of glomerulonephritis in the background of scrub typhus infection. Patient was treated conservatively with Doxycycline and gradually AKI resolved and also other features of glomerulonephritis. This case study highlights the role of early diagnosis and treatment of scrub typhus based on a high index of clinical suspicion and adequate investigations
