Four unusual cases of obstructive uropathy causing chronic renal failure are
presented. All four patients had schizo-affective disorders, exposure to
with anticholinergic activity, psychogenic polydipsia, and no anatomic lesion
causing obstruction. It is postulated that functional bladder outlet
obstruction due to anticholinergics combined with excessive urine volumes
by polydipsia led to chronic renal injury.
