Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 42 year old man, who was admitted to the emergency department due to chronic pain in the right side of the abdomen. A urine test was done which revealed increase in the blood cells and leukocytes. He was diagnosed with acute renal infarction, a problem in the kidney arteries, often found in people with cardiogenic or noncardiogenic background. The article discusses how acute renal infarction can be diagnosed and can be treated with anticoagulation therapy.
