Anuria Definition

Anuria is a medical condition in which a person is either unable to pass urine or passes less quantity of urine which is less than 100 millilitres per day due to malfunctioning of kidneys.


1. Less intake of water or Dehydration: If a person does not drink enough water body preserves water and don't allow to pass urine as it is required by the body.

2. Diabetes: Due to high level of sugar in blood like in diabetes, small blood vessels are damaged because of keto-acidosis , this can cause little damage to kidneys and causes absence of urine production.

3. Heart Failure: When heart does not pump blood properly throughout the body kidneys hold on the water it already has and without circulation of blood kidney does not work properly and no urine is passed.

4. Tumor or Stone: A tumor growth or stones in the kidneys or near renal track can block passage of urine.

5. High blood pressure: Hypertension in blood vessels can damage the vessels in the kidneys, with time this may lead to kidney damage hence anuria.
