Abstract

Although a somewhat clumsy term, renal sympathecticotonica is preferable to the “nephralgia” of a bygone generation and to the inaccurate “renal asthma”. The term indicates precisely what is believed to be the underlying pathology of a nebulous condition (Harris 1930). Indeed, it seems evident that if renal denervation is successful in curing a patient with non-obstructive hydronephrosis, nephroptosis or otherwise unexplained pain of renal origin, that hyperactivity of the sympathetic nerve supply must have been the underlying cause.
