Abstract: •Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is often a serious adverse event associated with the use of iodinated radiocontrast agents. •CIN is most commonly defined as acute renal failure occurring within 48-72hr of exposure to intravascular radiographic contrast material that is not attributable to other causes. •Various independent risk factors have been reported for the development of CIN; however, the underlying pathogenesis is still not fully understood.
