In 1947 Vaughan, Sosman and Kinney1 presented a single unique case of nephrocalcinosis associated with chronic glomerulonephritis in which the calcification took the form of roentgenographically visible fine granular deposits throughout the renal parenchyma. Since that time only one other case, apparently identical in most respects, has been reported.2
It is our purpose to describe four additional cases of nephrocalcinosis associated with chronic glomerulonephritis, and to differentiate their roentgenographic findings from those in cases of nephrocalcinosis associated with other conditions.
Nephrocalcinosis is a term used in this report to designate roentgenographically visible fine diffuse calcification of the renal parenchyma. While
