Introduction:

Dehydration in pediatric population is a frequent symptom especially in developing country.Many complications are observed in  moderate to dehydration in children

Material and methods:

This study aimed to describe clinical characteristics, biochemistry features and evolution in hospitalized children with acute renal failure (ARF) complicated dehydration in a pediatric department

Results:

Between 2012 and 2016, 113 patients were admitted in our pediatric department with dehydration, average age was 18 years. Fifteen per cent Presented moderate to severe dehydration. The average age was 12 months . Laboratory tests made in all cases. Only 35 patients had kidney failure at the admission (31%). Intravenous perfusion was the first procedure in 85%. At discharge, only three patients died with ad integrum restitution of creatinine in the others cases (94%).

Conclusions:

Children who have suffered ARF from any cause are at risk for late development of kidney disease several years after the initial insult. Continued surveillance will be important to consider many years after the ARF.
