    A 79-year-old man, newly started on carbamazepine, presented with rash, eosinophilia and liver dysfunction progressing to acute renal failure despite discontinuation of the anti-epileptic agent. Percutaneous renal biopsy revealed acute granulomatous interstitial nephritis, which responded successfully to high-dose oral steroid therapy.
