No. of cases Years 21 i~ 12 ~ ; I,. 82% cured 18 % cured }8%cured What is the life expectation for cases of chronic nephritis? In order to assess cases it must be appreciated that chronic nephritis can take two forms: 1. vascular development, 2. nephritis with nephrotic complications. The vascular development is characterised by increasing blood pressure over the years, with little albumen in the urine and possibly the appearance of microhaematuria. Renal insufficiency only occurs in the final stages.

The condition may continue, without complications, for many years. These cases have a more favorable prognosis. On the other hand, essential hypertension may, and often does, lead to arterial degeneration and adversely affect various organs, especially kidneys, heart and brain. At this stage the prognosis rapidly deteriorates. Moreover, it may be impossible to decide whether primary or secondary hypertension is present. 2. Secondary hypertension. Secondary hypertension may arise at any age. Hypertension commencing before age 35 is almost always secondary, as is a sudden onset of hypertension at any age.

Advanced stage. Stage 4: (1) Advanced arteriolar constriction (silver wire appearance), lumen partially obliterated. (2) Marked papilledema. (3) Ischemic retinal edema. (4) Spasm of the veins. The Underwriting of Blood Pressure Abnormalities 43 Director is always necessary. In the most favorable cases the Rating Tables may be used, with the reservation that a minimum rating of + 50 be applied. (b) Reduction in blood pressure Material reductions (30 mm or more systolic, 10 mm or more diastolic) in ratable blood pressure over short periods (at most six months) may give rise to a suspicion that serious disease is present, or that medical treatment has been instituted.
