Obstructive urinary tract disease due to Schistosoma haematobium infection was evaluated as a model of hydronephrosis in man. The effect of hydronephrosis and bacteriuria on renal function was studied. Maximal urinary concentrating ability (Umax); 24-hr creatinine clearance, and intravenous urography were tested before and after treatment in 35 men, aged 4 to 52 years, with urinary schistosomiasis. Nine patients had minimal urographic abnormalities and were able to concentrate (mean = 862 mOsm/kg) better (P < 0.0005) than 12 patients with bilateral obstructive uropathy (763 mOsm/kg). In eight patients with bilateral obstructive uropathy and bacterial urinary tract infection Umax (583 mOsm/kg)
