Introduction: Although new strains of coronavirus such as Omicron are less lethal, they have one of the fastest transmission rates. In addition to pulmonary infection, this disease also has many complications such as kidney complications. In this study, we present an 80-year-old woman with acute kidney injury with a normal creatinine level who was admitted to Sarem Women’s Hospital.
Case presentation: An 80-year-old female patient came to the emergency department of Sarem Hospital, Tehran, Iran, on the morning of April 9, 1402, complaining of weakness and lethargy, and body pain. The patient had previously visited other centers twice and experienced a rise in creatinine from 0.6 mg/dL to 1.3 mg/dL. Due to the rales and edema of the lower limbs, the patient was sent to a specialized nephrology center. One round of dialysis was performed for the patient. Fortunately, the patient recovered his kidney function.
Conclusion: The net level of creatinine is not a suitable criterion to determine the functional status of all patients and its changes must be evaluated to diagnose AKI. Even changes as small as 0.3 mg/dL in creatinine level should be considered. Also, the physical examination of patients with Omicron is very important and should not be neglected.
