The Uremic Syndrome: Definition, Diagnosis, Causes of Signs and Symptoms, Complications
Uremia is a battery of signs and symptoms caused by renal failure. Depending on the nature of the renal failure (acute or chronic), its severity, and its duration, the symptoms of the uremic syndrome may differ greatly in nature and severity, iatrogenic factors (see Chapter 15) and therapy (see Chapters 14 and 15) may largely influence the clinical aspect of uremic patients when compared to untreated ones.
