Pseudo-azotaemia due to intraperitoneal urine leakage: a report of two cases

The first case was a 37-year-old woman with delayed intraperitoneal urinary leakage following total abdominal hysterectomy, and the second was a 70-year-old woman with spontaneous bladder perforation. Although the initial diagnosis in both cases was acute kidney injury, rupture of the urinary bladder was later identified.
