The following case of persistent hematuria from the left kidney of sixteen months' duration, which was cured by the injection of adrenalin in the renal pelvis through a ureter catheter, seems of sufficient interest to warrant publication.
It is interesting because of supposed traumatic origin, an injury having been received ten days before the hematuria began; because pain was constantly present in the side injured, but the hemorrhage came from the opposite side; because of the absence of any signs of nephritis which is held to be generally present in such cases, and because no previous publication of the use of adrenalin for such purpose has been found in the literature.
—R. H. D., single, aged 36, admitted Dec. 3, 1906, complaining of blood in urine.
—His family history was negative, as was also his past history. Patient had never had gonorrhea nor syphilis. No previous urinary trouble.
