Abstract

The cause of chronic glomerular nephritis is by no means clear, nor is there much agreement among investigators as to whether an acute attack followed by a latent period is the forerunner of the chronic stage. It is not the purpose of this article, nor will any attempt be made, to discuss exhaustively the literature on these problems.
