Disorders of the Kidney and Urinary Tract

  • William F. Finn


There is evidence that many environmental chemicals produce acute and chronic renal damage (3, 13, 17, 60, 61, 124). The extent to which these agents cause clinically significant renal disease, however, has not been determined. Nor has the population at risk been clearly defined. The occurrence of many forms of acute and chronic renal failure without known cause and the presence of marked racial and regional differences in the incidence of chronic end-stage renal disease raise the question of the health hazard presented by environmental nephrotoxins.
