Abstract

Connection between direct kidney involvement and novel CoronaVirus Disease (COVID-19) has been less evident until now. In today’s critical scenario of COVID-19, as healthcare professionals, our prime responsibility is to create awareness in clinician and general public as to mysterious facts of kidney involvement in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome CoronaVirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Further, we have shed light on the clinical management of patients with chronic kidney disorders, particularly those on dialysis and having kidney transplants who are critically ill with COVID-19. Based upon our comprehensive literature review, we concluded that kidney involvement is an independent risk factor for mortality in patients with COVID-19 infection. This paper will assuredly be helpful for the new generation nephrologists to deal with such a disastrous situation.
