Renal cortical necrosis is a rare cause of acute renal failure, occurs due to ischemic necrosis of the renal cortex. Acute renal failure as a result of renal cortical necrosis cannot be distinguished from other causes of acute renal failure like acute tubular necrosis and the renal biopsy is the only way to make conclusive diagnosis. Acute renal cortical necrosis leads to rapid decline in renal function which is of irreversible in nature and very soon, the patient becomes dialysis dependent if proper intervention not done at the earlier phase of illness. Here, we are presenting such a case of acute renal cortical necrosis, resistant to treatment and ultimately ended into permanent renal loss.
