          Abstract

          Baseline serum creatinine (bSCr) is required for diagnosing acute kidney injury (AKI). In children, bSCr is commonly defined as the lowest measurement within 3 months of admission. Measured values are often missing and estimating bSCr using height-based glomerular filtration rate (GFR) equations is problematic when height is unavailable.
