• A patient with acute oliguric uric acid nephropathy was treated with hemodialysis. Recovery in this disorder is based on treatment of both the uremic state and the intrarenal crystal obstruction. Hemodialysis with high uric acid clearance is much more efficient than other forms of therapy in this disorder.
