    Abstract

    A case is presented in which numerous mitotic figures were found in the liver, pancreas, and adrenal glands of a patient who died in uraemia due to acute tubular necrosis.

    The possibilities of the failure of excretion of a waste product acting as a stimulus to mitosis, or that a mitotic stimulant is released from the acutely ischaemic kidney, are suggested.
