A characteristic type of renal tubular epithelial damage has been described in both man and experimental animals following the intravenous administration of hypertonic sucrose solutions.

It has also been reported to have occurred in man following such substances in hypertonic solutions as acacia, creatinine, sodium sulfate and urea. Although repeated injections of hypertonic sucrose at frequent intervals can effect significant interference with renal function in man, it is generally considered that the renal lesion produced by
