ABSTRACT
Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, a gram-negative coccobacillus, is a member of the enterobacteriaceae family, and the illness has fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea, mesenteric lymphadenitis, terminal ileitis, arthropathy, erythema nodosum. Specially in children, it is known as an important cause of acute renal failure due to acute tubulointerstitial nephritis. It has been recognized in a worldwide distribution. For the first time, the cases of acute renal failure caused by this organism were reported in Japan in 1980's. In Korea, the first case accompanying with ARF was reported in 1988. Since that, many cases have been reported in Seoul area, but no case in other places. So we report 2 cases of Y.P. infection accompanying with ARF in Pusan area, for the first time in other place than Seoul area.
Key words: Yersinia pseudotuberculosis | ARF | Acute tubulointerstitial nephritis
