The authors' experiences at the Cook County and Mt. Sinai hospitals in Chicago and a thorough review of the literature on the pathology, pathological physiology, and therapy of acute renalfailure, with oliguria and uremia, have served as the basis for this monograph. More space is devoted to a review of conditions associated with elevated plasma calcium levels than to all forms of therapy for acute and chronic renal failure (50 compared to 40 pages). The review of hyperparathyroidism, "milk-alkali" syndrome, sarcoidosis simulating hyperparathyroidism, and other conditions associated with hypercalcemia is well worth study, as are the sections on lupus, gouty kidney, and other renal disorders. This can be recommended as a sound guide to the management of the oliguric and polyuric phases of acute renal damage.
