1 Title: Death Certificate
Note>> Brights Disease was a generic term for kidney ailments. Kidney inflammation may be due to: (1) Glomerulo-nephritis, a kidney disorder that causes protein (albumin), cells, and blood to appear in the urine. When chronic, it may cause kidney failure or uraemia, and only hemo-dialysis can sustain life; or (2) Infection, which may be treated with antibiotics. Neither dialysis nor antibiotics were available in the 1920's.
