  Results:  Maximum incidence (22%) of AKI was seen in the age group between 25– 34 years. The most common clinical features were vomiting (92%), oliguria (80%), and fever (70%). The incidence of prerenal, renal and postrenal AKI was 20%, 76%, 4% respectively; Malaria (34%) was the predominant cause of AKI in our study.
