Abstract

Kidney involvement is an under-recognized complication of both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The diversity of lymphoma-related renal manifestations makes diagnosis difficult. Although abrupt worsening of kidney function may be the first sign of malignant disease, renal effects can be subtle or even silent. The causes of renal involvement similarly are varied. We discuss a case of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and associated kidney failure from several distinct malignancy-related mechanisms and review the spectrum of lymphoma-related kidney involvement.
