In 1997,  RH Hurley, MD, pediatric nephrologist at St Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton, Canada proposed in a letter to the Canadian Medical Association Journal that St. Patrick’s Day disease be included in a differential diagnosis of green urine. 
As shown in the letter below, the doctor provides a reasonable explanation for the etiology of the condition.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
