Abstract

A few days after ingestion of 40 match heads, a 3-year-old boy was admitted to hospital with oliguric acute renal failure (ARF) requiring peritoneal dialysis during 9 days. A renal biopsy showed acute tubulointerstitial nephritis; the outcome was rapidly favorable and the child recovered normal GFR. It seems to be the first published case of ARF after match poisoning, probably because of the presence of potassium bichromate.
