TORREZ SALAZAR, Jeanneth et al. INSUFICIENCIA RENAL AGUDA POR PICADURA DE HORMIGAS DEL PALO SANTO (PSEUDOMYRMEX SPP). Gac Med Bol [online]. 2007, vol.30, n.1, pp. 50-53. ISSN 1012-2966.

Acute Renal Insufficiency (ARI) is an unusual complication caused by the puncture of ants that falls into a secondary ischemic toxic damage with an Acute Tubular Necrosis. The two patients presented were transferred from the tropic of Cochabamba state to the Viedma Hospital, they have experienced an allergic reaction, intravascular hemolysis, rhabdomyolysis and ARI caused by the massive attack of ants that inhabit the trunk of the "Palo Santo" where they were tied by several hours. Few reports are known about the affectedness of the kidney organ, as well as the implied pathogenic mechanisms. The patients improved their clinical condition thanks to the opportune support; both recovered the kidney function after 2 weeks from the initiated hemodialysis.

Palavras-chave : Acute renal faillure; intravascular hemolysis; rhabdomyolysis; ants; hemodialysis.
