Renal cortical necrosis
Renal cortical necrosis is a rare cause of acute kidney failure normally due to profoundly reduced renal arterial flow resulting from acute tubular necrosis. The condition is caused by significantly diminished arterial perfusion of the kidneys due to spasms of the feeding arteries, microvascular injury, or disseminated intravascular coagulation and is the pathological progression of acute tubular necrosis.
