The clinical features of Chinese herbs nephropathy are characterized by rapidly progressive renal failure without both urinary sediment abnormalities and proteinuria except for a microproteinuria of tubular type. The kidneys are small and shrunken. Vascular heart diseases are associated in 30% of cases (probably owing to dexfenfluramine administered with the Chinese herbs for slimming purposes) [35]. Some cases of associated urothelial cancers also are described [36,37].
