Abstract

Renal failure has long been known to lead to hyperuricemia, which, however, has been reported not to be strictly proportional to the reduction of the glomerular filtration rate, due to the adaptative mechanisms of tubular resorption and to increased intestinal uricolysis (Rieselbach and Steele, 1975).
