Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Scleroderma renal crisis (SRC) is a rarebut severe complication of systemic sclerosis. SRC usually occurs in the presence of high blood pressure but may be seen in patients with normal blood pressure. Normotensive SRC cases have a poorer prognosis and failure to recognize this condition can result in a fatal outcome, depriving the patient of the potential benefits of ACE inhibitors. We present a case of diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis with early onset normotensive SRC and oliguric acute renal failure.
