In a series of 300,000 consecutive patients who underwent excretory urography between January 1, 1964 and January 5, 1982, four deaths were recorded (a mortality rate of 1.3:100,000). All four patients who died were 50 years of age or older, all had a history of some type of hypersensitivity, all had a respiratory component to the reaction, all received a 1 ml test dose and had no reaction, and none had received a prior injection of contrast medium. The mortality rate in this series (1:75,000) is significantly lower than recently reported rates from multiinstitutional studies and is similar to the mortality rate resulting from the parenteral administration of penicillin. Differences in reported series may relate to methods of data collection, variations in patient population, and therapeutic management.
