We consider here a class of anisotropic elliptic equations, in a bounded domain $\Omega$ with Lipschitz continuous boundary $\partial \Omega$, of the type $$ -\sum_{i=1}^{N}\partial_{x_{i}}\big(a_{i}(x,u) |\partial_{x_{i}}u|^{p_{i}-2}\partial_{x_{i}} u\big) =f- {\rm div} g $$ with Dirichlet boundary conditions. Using the framework of renormalized solutions we prove the uniqueness of the solution under a very local Lipschitz condition on the coefficients $a_{i}(x,s)$ with respect to $s$ and with $f$ belonging to $L^1(\Omega)$.
