Voriconazole is a good antifungal drug, which is often used to treat aspergillosis. Little is, however, known about its renal toxicity effect. A patient with microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) and pulmonary aspergillosis treated with Voriconazole suffered from acute renal failure, which was diagnosed Voriconazole therapy-associated acute kidney injury. Finally the patient recovered. This is a case report of Voriconazole therapy-associated acute kidney injury.


Key words: Voriconazole, aspergillosis, therapy-associated, acute kidney injury.
