Onconephrology (from the Ancient Greek onkos meaning bulk, mass, or tumor, nephros meaning kidney, and the suffix -logy, meaning "study of") is a burgeoning new specialty in nephrology that deals with the study of kidney diseases in cancer patients.
Nephrologists may further sub-specialise in dialysis, kidney transplantation, chronic kidney disease, cancer-related kidney diseases (Onconephrology), procedural nephrology or other non-nephrology areas as described above.

Chemotherapy

Kidney failure from break down of cancer cells, usually after chemotherapy, is unique to onconephrology. Several chemotherapeutic agents – for example cisplatin – are associated with acute and chronic kidney injuries.

Cisplatin

Acute kidney injury

acute renal failureacute kidney failureuremic poisoning
The most common form of kidney disease in cancer patients is acute kidney injury (AKI) which can usually be due to volume depletion from vomiting and diarrhea that occur following chemotherapy or occasionally due to kidney toxicities of chemotherapeutic agents.

Diarrhea
