The preceding observations record a new instance of the occurrence of cyclic albuminuria in an otherwise apparently healthy young man.

The specific effect of the horizontal posture in dispelling the albuminuria is the most interesting feature observed. The attempt to refer this to attendant circulatory changes in the kidneys is, for the present, no more than an interesting speculation.
