The article presents abstracts of several research papers related to kidney diseases published in various journals. In the article "Reversible Renal Failure Due to Acute Pyelonephritis," four patients with acute renal failure have been described. Possible predisposing factors were inadequate bladder emptying, suspected analgesic abuse, rheumatoid arthritis and previous bladder catheterization. Three patients underwent unnecessary laparotomy because of severe abdominal pain and tenderness. On excretion urography, the usual finding was an immediate obvious nephrogram with renal enlargement.
