This preliminary study of 50 patients suffering from acute renal failure showed the aetiology to be medical in 30 patients, gynaecological in g patients, obstetric in 6 patients, and surgical in 5 patients. The commonest medical causes of acute renal failure were septicaemia and nephrotoxins (mainly from herbal medicines).
