Acute viral hepatitis A is a common cause of jaundice with a very low mortality. Acute renal failure occurs very rarely in hepatitis A. We report a case of non-fulminant hepatitis A in a 45-year-old man complicated by acute renal failure. The patient was treated successfully with hemodialysis resulting in complete recovery. Kidney biopsy was not performed in view of improving clinical picture.
