Tiny Tim?s illness is not named in A Christmas Carol. In 1992 a pediatrician, Dr. Donald Lewis, said in The American Journal of Diseases of Children that Dickens? description sounded most like a distal renal tubular acidosis, or kidney disease? Tiny Tim was also the stage name of Herbert Khaury (1932-1996), an absurdist ukelele-playing pop singer of the 1960s.
