MARCHIORI, Jennifer Soanno; OLIVEIRA, Miguel Athos Da Silva De  y  BEZERRA, Italla Maria Pinheiro. COVID-19 and its relationship with kidney diseases: a scope review. J. Hum. Growth Dev. [online]. 2021, vol.31, n.3, pp. 533-548. ISSN 0104-1282.

BACKGROUNG: COVID-19 is an acute respiratory disease originally from China that emerged in December 2019 and quickly spread around the world, affecting 230,418.415 people, and causing 4,724,876 deaths. Coming from the coronavirus family, SARS-CoV-2 is a new subtype of virus that affects the respiratory tract in different levels and can spread and affect other vital structures in the body. OBJECTIVE: to identify the risk factors that lead patients infected by the new coronavirus to develop kidney disease. METHODS: this is a systematic review of the Scoping Review type (scope review), according to the method proposed by the Joanna Briggs Institute, with the implementation of a checklist structured by PRISMA-ScR that contains 22 mandatory items. The following descriptors were used: coronavirus infection, acute kidney injury and risk factors in five databases, namely PudMed, Scopus, Embase, Virtual Health Library and Web of Science. RESULTS: while reading the studies, it was concluded that Acute Kidney Injury was the main renal finding in patients contaminated by SARS-CoV-2. The risk factors for developing renal worsening in patients with COVID-19 were the extremes of age, race, sex, pre-existing diseases, and the disease evolution. CONCLUSION: it is assumed that renal involvement does not occur only for an exclusive reason, but as a set of factors. It is up to the health team to pay constant attention to the warning signs by monitoring the contaminated patient.
