Bilateral necrosis of the renal cortex, which presents such a distinct clinical and striking pathologic picture, was first recognized by Juhel-Renoy1 in 1886 in a young female with scarlet fever. Of the approximately 100 cases that have been reported to date, one-half have occurred in association with pregnancy, the rest in a variety of situations, including acute infections and alcoholism.2 It is not within the scope of this paper to discuss the symptomatology, pathology and clinical course of bilateral cortical necrosis. These considerations have been excellently reviewed by Ash3 and more recently by Duff and More.2
