Since 1897, retrograde pyelography has been used in studying diseases of the genitourinary tract. This is the method of choice for studying patients who are sensitive to contrast material given intravenously. We have studied a patient in whom unique sensitivity resulted from contrast media administered in retrograde fashion. Review of the urologic literature has revealed no similar case.
A 35 year old man was referred on April 23, 1955, to the urologic service of the Graduate Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for study because he had been passing red blood cells in his urine following back injury.
