Title Blood urea ratio in pyelitis and pyelonephritis.
Date 1937-06
Description From a study of the non-protein nitrogen of the blood in a series of human cases the following results are summarized: (1) A series of 27 normal individuals was shown to have average blood urea ratio of 42. (2) The blood urea in a heterogeneous group of cases consisting of kidney pathology accompanied by renal insufficiency was more than 55. (3) In 29 cases of pyelitis, the average blood urea ratio was 37; in 21 cases of pyelonephritis the value was 49. (4) Pyelitis was shown to have an average urea ration less than normal while pyelonephritis had a ratio of more than normal. The former fact is not explainable in the light of my experimental work. The later fact can be correlated with results in this paper and those of other workers which show that the urea ratio is increased with damage of the excretory elements of the renal parenchygmatous tissue. (5) In the light of the above facts the blood urea ratio constitute a useful differential diagnostic and prognostic point between the so-called clinical conditions, pyelitis and pyelonephritis.
