Intravesical silver nitrate has been used for intractable bladder hemorrhage. A case of anuria resulting from this technique is reported. The etiology of anuria in this patient was probably owing to obstruction from deposition of silver salts. The level of obstruction was the ureterovesical junction on one side and the collecting ducts at the renal papillae on the other side. Therapy consisted of vigorous endoscopic evacuation of deposited silver salts from the bladder and hemodialysis with good results.
