Because of a number of circulatory antitheses between exophthalmic goiter and myxedema it seems probable on purely a priori grounds that the effect would be to increase renal function in exophthalmic goiter and to decrease it in myxedema. A total of 75 patients with exophthalmic goiter and 22 with myxedema were tested by means of the phenolsulphonephthalein test as described by Rowntree and Geraghty. It was found that the renal function of myxedema patients, as determined by this method, is slightly but consistently lower than that of exophthalmic goiter patients in all age groups except in the group 60 years
