In the early stages of CsA administration kidney damage can occur, which causes alterations in intrarenal hemodynamics related to afferent arteriolar vasoconstriction, causing a decrease in glomerular filtration rate, renal plasma flow, loss of proximal tubular cells brush border, proximal tubule dilatation, swelling, necrosis, and infiltration of white blood cells in the kidney cortex.
Some of the typical signs of CsA usage include reduced glomerular filtration and changes in intrarenal hemodynamic function, which can start to occur after one week of usage (Tegzess, 1988, Kahan, 1989).
