Abstract

Altogether 100 patients with associated podagra and renal injury were examined and treated. Before the first admission to the clinic only 5% of the patients had received combined therapy of renal pathology on a regular basis, 33% of the patients had been given pathogenetic but not systematic therapy. 66% of the patients had not responded to the treatment, whereas 38% manifested a decrease in renal function. Sixty patients were followed up for the results of further dispensary observation during 1.5 to 5 years. These patients were distributed into 2 groups. The first one comprised 26 patients who adhered strictly to the physicians' recommendations, the second group consisted of patients who received treatment irregularly. The clinicolaboratory improvement was attained in almost 3/4 of the first group patients and in less than 1/4 of the second group patients. The best effect was attained in the treatment of the urolithiasis pattern of nephropathy, whereas the less marked in chronic interstitial nephritis. The worst results were attained in patients with glomerulonephritis.
