Kidney Problems and the Death of Mozart  

Symptoms of Kidney Problems Lead to New Conclusions

Symptoms of kidney problems now seem to be one of the causes that killed 35 year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1791.

Mozart was apparently healthy until Nov. 22 of that year, when he suddenly fell ill and died shortly thereafter.

At first many people thought he had been poisoned. But it now appears his death may have been the result of a strep infection.

An epidemic of edema swept Vienna in the winter of 1791-92, and Mozart appears to have contracted it. Besides edema, records and recollections of witnesses say Mozart had to malaise, back pain and a rash, which are all symptoms of strep infection. Witnesses also reported that his body had swelled up severely. Such severe swelling is a symptom of a kidney disease called glomerulonephritis.

Through the years, there have been plenty of guesses--some extremely conspiratorial--about the cause of Mozart's demise at the height of his fame. But the best analysis as of today is a strep infection followed by kidney complications.
