SINCE THE term "salt-losing nephritis" was introduced by Thorn, Koepf, and Clinton1 in 1944, in their study of two cases simulating adrenal cortex insufficiency, four additional cases have been reported.2 An associated tendency toward excessive loss of potassium was found in one case,2c and electrocardiographic evidence of hyperpotassemia was seen in another.2d The present report is concerned with a case of salt-losing nephritis, followed for two years, in which sodium was lost and potassium was retained in excess quantities.
