The nine analyses which follow were developed from points raised in this survey of the literature. The first is a general description, including clinical features, of 139 patients with malignant hypertension seen in Glasgow between 1968 and 1983. The second is of the importance of different retinal changes in the diagnosis of malignant hypertension. The third tests the possibility that cigarette smoking may predispose to the malignant phase in susceptible patients. The fourth examines the relation between the oral contraceptive pill and malignant hypertension in women of childbearing age. The fifth evaluates the role played by abnormal haemostasis in the pathogenesis of the disease. In study six the efficacy and safety of slow release nifedipine and atenolol as initial treatment for malignant hypertension are compared. The seventh and eighth analyses examine the changes that occur in renal function during treatment of malignant hypertension, and the ninth is a study of survival.
