Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tubulointerstitial nephritis defines a wide spectrum of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases affecting renal tubules and the interstitium. Inflammation can be the consequence of autoimmune or infectious diseases, but hypersensitivity phenomena involving exposure to drugs are among the most frequent causes. Moreover, novel antitumoral medications acting through immune system modulation may induce tubulointerstitial nephritis. The diagnosis is frequently suspected based on clinical history and presentation, but renal biopsies may reveal specific morphological features and drive the clinical decision. Prognosis is extremely variable as the clinical approach can differ radically based on the etiology, and should include, when possible, removal of the causal agent, requiring immunomodulatory or anti-infectious medications in specific cases.

The aims of this Special Issue include collecting current knowledge about the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of tubulointerstitial nephritis, and providing kidney clinicians and pathologists with novel tools to understand and face this heterogeneous and insidious disease.

This Special Issue will collect original research and review papers on the “epidemiology and clinical outcomes of tubulointerstitial nephritis”, as well as “novel physiopathological insights and novel forms of tubulointerstitial nephritis”, “clinical and histological features” and “therapeutic approaches: pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies”.
