Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS) is a type of acute kidney injury (AKI), occurring in patients with decompensated liver cirrhosis and is associated with high mortality. We aim to describe the predictors associated with the development of HRS in cirrhotic patients with AKI. We retrospectively analyzed 125 cirrhotic patient encounters with AKI across all Health institutions between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2022. We performed multivariate analyses to determine independent predictors of development of HRS. Alcoholic cirrhosis was the most common identified etiology of cirrhosis. The mean Model for End-Stage Liver Disease Scorewas18 (±7). Ascites was the most commonly identified clinical feature of portal hypertension. Infection was identified in 38.4% of patients with urinary tract infection/pyelonephritis being the most common. Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis occurred in 5.9% of patients. The most common cause of AKI was pre-renal. Hepatorenal syndrome was identified in 9.8% of patient encounters. Predictors of HRS were history of ascites, serum creatinine >2.5 mg/dL, albumin <3 g/dL, bilirubin >2 mg/dL and spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. We demonstrate strong predictors for the development of HRS which can aid clinicians to attain an early diagnosis of HRS, leading to prompt and targeted management and improving outcomes
