The differentiation of pyelonephritis from the causes of Bright's disease, and the concepts of its pathogenesis, course and sequelae, constitute serial advances in our understanding of the nature of urinary tract infections.1-6 These classic works still leave large areas where further knowledge is desirable. Most of the previous data have been derived only from autopsies, and the clinical correlations have been retrospective.

Preliminary correlative observations have been reported.7, 8 Analysis of autopsy and surgical records, diagnostic criteria
