PaO2, PaCO2, creatinine clearance (Ccr) and renal histopathological changes were studied in eight cases of Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) All cases were hypoxic and hypercapnic of varying grades. Three cases had impaired creatinine clearance. Kidney biopsy revealed hypercellularity, dilatation and congestion of glomerular tufts in six cases. Hypoxia was probably the major factor responsible for renal histopathological changes.
