Abstract

  1. Forty-two patients with lymphatic dysplasia were examined by hippuran iodine 131 renograms. The patients all had clinical and lymphangiographic proof of lymphatic dysplasia. None of the patients  were hypertensive.
  2. Of the 84 kidneys studied, 17 handled the hippuran in normal fashion with only 7 patients showing bilaterally normal renograms.
  3. Abnormal  tracings  were  categorized  as mild  in 44  kidneys, moderate  in 16 kidneys, and severe  in 7 kidneys,  many  of  which could  have been  confused  with  nephrosclerosis or renal artery  stenosis.
