Von Noorden1 begged the question by characterizing the metabolism of nephritis as "bizarre and inexplicable," and many others have followed his example. Observations have been generally based on the assumption that nephritis, whether involving the glomeruli or the tubules, has only one effect on function : a diminished excretory activity of the part. Such an assumption lacks proof and is not in accord with the clinical conditions as they are generally acknowledged to exist.
