Brettauer and Rubin drew attention to uterine prolapse as a cause of urinary tract obstruction for the first time in the English literature in 1923. Several other reports followed, but the importance of this association is not widely appreciated and has been neglected in many standard medical and gynaecological textbooks. We describe two cases in which uterine prolapse caused renal failure and in which simple measures restored renal function to normal.
