Abstract

Tenofovir, one of antiretroviral medication to treat human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, is known to cause proximal renal tubular acidosis such as Fanconi syndrome, but cases of distal renal tubular acidosis had never been reported. A 20-year-old man with HIV infection developed nausea and vomiting without diarrhea after starting antiretroviral therapy. Arterial blood gas revealed non-anion-gap metabolic acidosis and urine test showed positive urine anion gap. Tenofovir, one of antiretroviral medicine the patient received, was considered to be the cause of this acidosis and all antiretroviral drugs were discontinued. Symptoms disappeared promptly without recurrence of symptoms after resuming antiretroviral medications without tenofovir. Distal renal tubular acidosis caused by tenofovir, without renal impairment is very rare. Since causes of nausea and vomiting among HIV/AIDS patients are very diverse, awareness of this phenomenon is useful in diagnosing and managing the problem.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 30 September 2020.
All research outputs
#4,740,889
of 18,990,581 outputs
Outputs from BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology
#85
of 369 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#107,345
of 406,731 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology
#8
of 35 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,990,581 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 75th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 369 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 406,731 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 35 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its contemporaries.
