  • Acute- on- chronic liver failure( ACLF) is the most common type of liver failure in China,and it has complicated clinical manifestations and high mortality. When the patients experience ACLF complicated by acute kidney injury( AKI),they tend to have a prolonged length of hospital stay and a high risk of multiple organ failure,which always suggests poor prognosis. This article briefly describes the advances in the definition,causative factors,prognostic evaluation,diagnostic markers,and treatment of ACLF complicated by AKI. It is pointed out that early identification,diagnosis,and intervention of AKI helps to reverse kidney injury and avoid the development of severe AKI.
