JOHN E. PULASKI, M.D.
The literature on the subject of perirenal lymphangioma is extremely scanty. An excellent article with review of the subject has been presented by Kretschmer.2 Peripelvic cysts, which are large lymphatic cysts of the kidney, have been described very thoroughly by Henthorne,10 and recently in an article by Scholl.9 The purpose of this presentation is to report another case of unilateral pyelonephritis resulting from compression of the left renal pedicle by a cavernous lymphangioma . . . with subsequent development of severe hypertension. Death resulted from an intracerebral hemorrhage.
