D INH

Ans. D INH

Drugs Causing Acute Interstitial Nephritis:

a. Antibiotics [β lactam, Sultonamides, Quinolones, Vanco­mycin Eythromycin, minocycline, rifampicin, Ethambutol, Acyclovir]

b. NSAIDS

c. Diuretics

d. Anticonvulsants [Phenytoin, Phenobarbitone, Carbamaze­ pine, Valproate.]

e. Miscellaneous - [captopril, H2 blockers, mesalazine, indi­navir, Allopurinol].

INH is mentioned as a cause of allergic interstitial nephritis, not in acute interstitial nephritis.

So, the answer is most probably INH.
