Renal cortical necrosis is a pathological lesion associated with the clincical syndrome of abrupt onset of gross hematuria, oliguria and anuria. It is characterized by a bilateral, symmetrical, pathcy-to-diffuse ischemic coagulative cortical necrosis sparing of the renal medulla and subcapsular rim of cortical tissue.
We report a case of acute cortical necrosis following total hysterectomy due to massive postpartum hemorrhage.
