Renal Biopsy Interpretation

by Anila Korula

The aim of this book is to focus on the renal biopsy interpretation. A renal biopsy is a procedure used to obtain a segment of renal tissue, usually through a needle or another surgical instrument. Analysis of this tissue is then used in the diagnosis of an underlying renal condition. This book consists of 15 chapters. The respective chapters begin with the normal histology of glomerular, tubulointerstitial and vascular compartments of the renal parenchyma and succinctly details the pathognomonic light microscopic, immunofluorescent and electron microscopic features of the various renal diseases. The text is comprehensively elucidated with excellent photomicrographs. Diagnostic features of renal allograft biopsies and rarer entities are highlighted to provide immediate and vital details that lead to the final diagnosis at the work bench beside the microscope. The book also includes the recent classifications and scoring systems of some of the primary and secondary systemic renal diseases that have been currently validated at the Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India. This book will become a valuable resource for pathology and nephrology trainees and faculty involved in the discipline.
