The correlation of the functional behavior and the structural characteristics of the blood vessels with the physiological units of the kidney is one of the most significant advances in the knowledge of kidney diseases during the past two decades. Evidence is accumulating that in the majority of instances of bilateral kidney disease of adult life the failure of the kidney function depends on a primary disease of the renal blood vessels. These cases are now variously classified as hypertensive renal disease, benign or malignant nephrosclerosis, and arteriosclerotic kidney disease. Contrariwise, in acute and chronic glomerulonephritis an "infectious process" is believed
