A 26-year-old Japanese man with out hypouricemia and with three earlier episodes of seizures concurrent with acute kidney harm (AKI) was admitted as a consequence of an epileptic seizure, decrease again ache and AKI. His creatinine kinase ranges have been barely elevated. Patchy renal ischemia on contrast-enhanced computed tomography and protracted residual distinction medium was noticed, according to acute renal failure with extreme loin ache and patchy renal ischemia after anaerobic train (ALPE). Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) demonstrated sign adjustments within the corresponding space. ALPE ought to be thought-about a explanation for AKI following seizures. We suggest DWI in its place diagnostic modality.
