Renal lesions in ten patients following Russell's viper bite were studied. Renal biopsies were available in six and autopsies in four patients. Autopsied tissues from two cases of traumatic death served as controls. Both qualitative and quantitative changes in the glomeruli, tubules, interstitium and blood vessels were evaluated. Tubular necrosis was detected in five, tubular degeneration in nine, glomerular changes in nine and interstitial changes in four cases. Generally tissues from expired cases had more severe and extensive renal lesions than those that survived.
