The aim of the study was to assess what percentage of Hantavirus-infected patients have kidney damage, what were the predominant symptoms from the urinary tract, what was the duration of acute kidney injury (AKI), and the evaluation of the consequences of Hantavirus infection. Dominant signs of Hantavirus infection are flu-like symptoms with a high temperature, discomfort on the part of the digestive system, volemia disorders, low levels of platelets, elevated serum creatinine, urea nitrogen and CRP. AKI occurred in 75% of patients and lasted about of 9 days. 5 patients requiring hemodialysis. A complete remission of renal function was observed in 68% of patients and partial in 32%. AKI of Hantavirus infection does not result in permanent damage of the kidney.
