Renal function in children infected with and in uninfected controls has been studied with the I hippuran renogram. The results suggest that renographic abnormalities which persist after a water-load are more common in infected children who have heavy egg-output in their urine, and abnormal pyelograms. Specific chemotherapy restored the renogram to normal within 3 weeks in several cases. It is suggested that the renogram is useful for the assessment and followup of patients with vesical schistosomiasis, and further work should be done to more clearly define the renal function of such patients.
