    Aim: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication in hospitalized children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS). However, the clinical profile and risk factors associated with AKI in this population are not well understood. This study aimed to investigate the clinical profile of AKI in hospitalized children with INS and identify the associated risk factors.Material and Methodology:This study was conducted on 50 children with INS who were admitted to a tertiary care hospital in India. Clinical data were collected from medical records and analyzed to determine the incidence and severity of AKI, as well as the associated risk factors. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results:Of the 50 children with INS, 19 (38%) developed AKI during their hospitalization. The majority of these children had stage 1 AKI, while a few had stage 2 or 3 AKI. The study also found that the risk factors associated with AKI in children with INS included age, duration of illness, serum albumin level, and the use of diuretics.Conclusion:This study highlights the importance of monitoring renal function in children with INS, as AKI is a common complication that can lead to poor outcomes. The findings of this study can help clinicians identify children at risk of AKI and implement appropriate interventions to prevent or manage this complication
