Question: What is azotemia? and how does amphoteric B cause it?

Answer: Azotemia, aka uremia, is the presence of nitrogenous compounds, usually urea, in increased amounts in the blood. Nitrogenous compounds like urea are a waste product from protein metabolism. Amphotericin B is nephrotoxic/causes renal failure. The kidneys become unable to eliminate urea by excreting it into the urine so it stays in the blood.
