Abstract

Acute and chronic impairment of renal function have been reported as complications of therapy with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. Renal prostaglandins play an increasingly important role in maintaining renal function when there is decreased renal blood perfusion. We describe a case of rapidly appearing acute renal failure following a single intramuscular dose of ketorolac.
