In patients with lymphoma, impairment of renal function may occur as a direct consequence of the tumor either in the form of neoplastic infiltration of the kidney or as bilateral ureteral obstruction secondary to retroperitoneal nodal enlargement. In addition, renal problems may arise from biochemical or immunologic disturbances accompanying the tumor or as a consequence of oncolytic therapy. An understanding of the pathogenesis of these changes in kidney structure and function will aid the clinician to establish the diagnosis of lymphoma earlier in some patients and to offer more effective and often lifesaving management in others.
