The kidneys often are involved during viral diseases, but seem to be peculiarly resistant to injury in contrast to other organs and tissues. They rarely bear the brunt of infection.

With increasing interest in the subject, as happens in other circumstances, more evidence of acute or chronic viral injury to the kidneys no doubt will accrue.
