As regards the curability of chronic interstitial nephritis, and as
to what may be accomplished by treatment, I maintain that it may
often be cured, if early recognized and properly treated, if the
patient's constitution be good and the organic changes be not too
extensive and advanced. Of this I have in my own practice positive
proofs. Much sometimes, of course, depends upon the causology. The
nephritis caused by and accompanying cystitis, even if of a severe
character, almost always subsides with the cystitis. The microscope
will show all the evidence of organic changes in the kidney, as
casts, epithelia from the pelvis and the tubuli contorti, but with
the cure of the cystitis all the phenomena of nephritic
inflammation will entirely disappear; permanently, so far as the
word can be applied to recovery from disease, a fact which
certainly shows that chronic nephritis may recover. And if after
cystitis, why not after other causes? But excluding the matter of
curability, a proper understanding of this form of nephritis may,
under favorable circumstances and in many forms of it, prolong life
