The case of a patient who developed acute renal failure due to acute tubular necrosis following a massive ingestion of gliclazide in a suicide attempt is reported. At admission the patient was hypoglycaemic & in a few days became oliguric with an increase in the serum creatinine concentration, but with a normal blood urea nitrogren level. He underwent dialysis & after 10 days, his renal function had rapidly improved. (9 refs.)
