An abnormally small output of urine. In health, the urinary output varies from 700 ml to 2 l. Oliguria is usually caused by inadequate fluid intake or increased fluid loss in sweating or diarrhoea. A more serious cause of oliguria is KIDNEY FAILURE, either acute or, less often, following long-term kidney disease.
