The influence of 2 types of experimental head trauma on urinary flow was followed in the dog. With severe injury, the prominent effect was an antidiuresis which was particularly marked in comparison with other traumas. Excessive antidiuretic hormone secretion was implicated plus an early catecholamine release in some instances. Ethanol diuresis was inhibited after head injury and the special dangers of combined (acute) ethanolism and head injury are emphasized. Solute diuresis with intravenous hypertonic mannitol was effective in reestablishing urine flow.
