anuria

[ənoo͡r′ē·ə]
Etymology: Gk, a, ouron, not urine
the absence of urine production or a urinary output of less than 100 mL per day. Anuria may be caused by a failure or kidney dysfunction, a decline in blood pressure below that required to maintain filtration pressure in the kidney, or an obstruction in the urinary passages. A rapid decline in urinary output, leading ultimately to anuria and uremia, occurs in acute renal failure. Kinds of anuria include angioneurotic anuria, obstructive anuria, postrenal anuria, and renal anuria. Also called anuresis, prerenal anuria. Compare oliguria. anuretic, anuric, adj.

anuria

A state characterised by a paucity of urine production, usually understood to mean less than 50 ml/day.
