Abstract

Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF), unknown before March 1997 and first described in 2000, is a systemic disorder characterised by widespread tissue fibrosis. The first known case occurred in 1997, after the use of gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) at high doses in patients with renal failure had become routine. An overwhelming majority occurred within weeks to months after injection of a GBCA. The link between nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) and GBCAs was recognised in 2006. This note comprises guidelines on the prevention of NSF.
