In patients with acute renal failure (ARF), the differential diagnosis may be more difficult than expected. Especially in young adults without additional diseases, it may not be considered in the diagnosis that an ARF can develop on the basis of chronic renal failure (CRF). In this case, ARF developed on the basis of CRF was presented in the light of literature in a young male patient who presented to the emergency department with ARF and who used chronic wild tobacco in his anamnesis.
