Descriptions of the paroxysm1 and of the changes in the blood2 produced by the intravenous injection of alkaline hematin and their relation to human malaria have been presented in previous articles, and it is the object of this paper to add a third group of conditions which may properly be described as the renal complications of hematin intoxication.
