Granulomatous interstitial nephritis (GIN) is a rare type of kidney disease, the precise etiology of which is obscure, but is most commonly seen following drug therapy and infection. The main infections seen in the onset of this pathology, especially in immunocompromised patients, include mycobacteria and fungi. Granulomatous interstitial nephritis can be a manifestation of systemic diseases, such as Wegener’s granulomatosis, Crohn’s disease, or sarcoidosis. We present our experience with GIN diagnosis and management.
