Morrison2 in the same year described total ischemic infarction of one kidney in an infant with thrombosis of the abdominal aorta ascribed to a peculiar arteritis.

Blockage of a renal artery leads to albuminuria and passage of blood and casts in the urine. Azotemia, oliguria and anuria and uremia will follow if both renal arteries are affected.
