Waxy cast

waxy cast

A form of urinary cast consisting of homogeneous proteinaceous material that has a high refractive index, in contrast to the low refractive index of hyaline cast's; waxy cast's probably represent an advanced stage of the disintegrative process that results in coarsely and finely granular cast's, and are usually indicative of oliguria or anuria.
