The ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) due to a novel coronavirus named severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by the World Health Organization has already wreaked havoc all over the world. About 5%–10% of all the patients of COVID-19 have severe diseases including acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and multi-organ failure in different population. Acute renal complications are not unusual and can range from mild proteinuria to advanced acute kidney injury requiring some form of renal replacement therapy. Many studies have shown that renal dysfunction is associated with very high mortality. Understanding the underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms may help the treating physicians to recognize the renal complications early and to prevent and manage the complications adequately.
