Abstract

Abstract It is proposed that essential hypertension is an exaggeration of the tendency for blood-pressure to rise with age, that it results from a repeated sequence in which a small rise in pressure, possibly resulting from an autonomic nervous overactivity, produces changes in the kidney which maintain the rise of pressure and become the basis for a further rise.
