In brief: Renal failure

Acute renal failure requires close attention to volume status, acid-base status, electrolytes, and any signs of uremia.
These events might signal a need for urgent dialysis. Avoiding exposure to nephrotoxic meds is necessary. Studies to rule out obstruction (u/s usually) are necessary as well.

Often there are offending medications (NSIADS, Antibiotics, chemotherapy agents) that can precipitate acute renal failure. Often stopping the medication and supportive care can help.
