Abstract MD thesis. A review of the anatomy and physiology of the kidney and the clinical and paraclinical aspects of pathological changes classified into acute and chronic renal diseases. Their aetiology may be traumatic, physical, infectious or toxic. Considering the primary importance of the kidney in the metabolism and excretion of products, kidney disorders due to toxic substances are the most frequent. The chief toxic agents responsible are the acyclic hydrocarbons, the derivatives of aromatic cyclic hydrocarbons, metals and metalloids. A chapter deals with the role of the kidney in other disorders of occupational origin such as silicosis or carbon monoxide poisoning.
