ANCA Positive Vasculitis and Renal Failure after mRNA Vaccination
Medical Disaster Calls for Alert Doctors, Diagnostic Testing, and Intensive Treatment
By Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH
Rapidly progressive kidney failure to the point of hemo- or peritoneal dialysis is a medical nightmare that must be avoided at all costs. Patients with slowly advancing renal disease due to diabetes or other problems have months if not years to get ready for dialysis or plan for kidney transplantation. Kidney failure requiring hospitalization or dialysis should never happen after a routine vaccine, yet it has occurred multiple times after COVID-19 mRNA injections (Pfizer or Moderna). This side effect is not listed in any consent form, FAQ, or on the blank package insert for the EUA genetic products. I wonder how many patients have gone into renal failure, were hospitalized and or died after mRNA vaccination with no recognition that Pfizer or Moderna could have triggered the catastrophe?
Chen described nine cases of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) positive vasculitis that must be diagnosed with the ANCA test and often biopsy followed by intensive medical treatment. Doctors and nurses must act fast, otherwise the condition can be fatal. As you can see from the table 7 of 8 were spared dialysis but most had permanent kidney damage to deal with for the rest of their lives. Sadly, one patient went on dialysis.
This paper serves as a reminder for doctors who are evaluating patients with constitutional symptoms weeks to months after mRNA vaccination to have a low threshold for routine common testing including serum creatinine and urinalysis. When early renal failure is detected additional testing including ANCA must be drawn and care should be elevated to specialists familiar with ANCA positive syndromes.

But, as usual, the authors persist in concluding that "the rare severe adverse effects should not be a reason for vaccine hesitancy". I am sick and tired of this BS. No one should take the risk of getting renal failure and depending on dialysis by taking a "vaccine" to avoid a respiratory virus... even less so since the "vaccine" does not work.
Can the mechanism of renal toxicity be inferred from its clinical course or clinical biochemistry?
I speculate that autoimmune attack plays a role. I can see other possible mechanisms, but this is axiomatic, in a setting where a person expresses non-self proteins. There are only two reasonable outcomes: tolerance or autoimmune attack.
Would you take the risk that the former happens? And consider whether or not you’d be ok with that. It would mean you would tolerate a potentially deadly situation such as an infection or transformation, instead of swiftly despatching the abberent cells.
