Objective: The objective of the study is to describe the clinical characteristics, risk factors, and prognosis for acute kidney injury (AKI) among patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Methods: Retrospective study of 456 consecutive patients with confirmed COVID-19 infection at the whole hospital from January 1 to March 1, 2020 was enrolled. Demographic, clinical characteristics, the risk factors, and prognosis were collected and analyzed. Results: Of 456 patients with COVID-19, 38 patients developed AKI. Patients with AKI were older and predominantly male sex and were more likely to have comorbidities such as hypertension, cardiovascular, and cerebrovascular diseases. Among patients with AKI, the white blood cell count, neutrophil count, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, alanine aminotransferase, and C-reaction protein were increased, and lymphocyte and platelet count were decreased. Multivariate analysis showed that age, hypertension, and lymphocyte count were independent risk factors for AKI. The overall mortality rate of 456 patients was 9.9%, and the mortality rate of patients with AKI was 23.7%. In particular, increasing AKI severity was associated with increased risk. Conclusions: The risk of AKI was high in patients with COVID-19. Older age, hypertension, and lower lymphocyte count were independent risk factors for AKI. COVID-19-associated AKI was associated with higher risk of death in patients with COVID-19.
