Endogenous creatinine clearance was measured in 220 pregnant women with acute pyelonephritis and the results compared to data obtained Tram 167 pregnant control patients without acute pyelonephritis. These data showed that an appreciable number of patients with pyelonephritis occurring during pregnancy demonstrated a transient but definite diminution in renal function during the acute attack. Causes of this temporary renal dysfunction arc discussed.
