We present a case of a UK soldier suffering multiple injuries in Afghanistan including a lacerated liver, complicated by acute anuric renal failure. His condition was stabilised prior to transfer to the UK using continuous venovenous haemofiltration. This is the first deployed use of renal replacement therapy by UK forces for several decades, and raises questions regarding the provision of this high level capability in the deployed setting.
