its a case of nephrotic syndrome... indomethacin
, an NSAID, can precipitate acute renal failure. NSAIDs are contraindicated in renal failure secondary to the decrease in prostaglandin secretion. This in turn may decrease the blood flow to the kidneys, resulting in worsening renal failure. Long-term NSAID use may result in papillary necrosis of the kidney.
