World kidney day is an international campaign focused on bringing awareness to kidney health throughout the world and reducing the incidence of renal disease and its related medical complications. This mini-review sought to take a short look on the renal impact of SARS-CoV-2, with a particular focus on post-COVID-19 nephropathy as a new dilemma in the era of nephrology, which can be a new concern for nephrologists that requires more attention and particular strategies.
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
Nephrologists should consider the possible emergence of renal diseases following COVID-19 disease and vaccination in individuals without prior kidney issues.
