inflammation of the interstitial tissue of the kidney. This term is generally used for primary inflammation of kidney tubules and/or surrounding interstitium. For primary inflammation of glomerular interstitium, see glomerulonephritis. Infiltration of the inflammatory cells into the interstitial compartment results in edema, increased spaces between the tubules, and tubular renal dysfunction.
