Medical Kidney Diseases: Morphology-Based Novel Approach to Renal Biopsy
Huma Fatima, MD
Medical Kidney Diseases: Morphology-Based Novel Approach to Renal Biopsy is
designed to provide brief and concise yet comprehensive information for practicing pathologists, pathology residents, and nephrology fellows. It presents a simple and practical approach to renal biopsy by providing a pertinent differential diagnosis related to various patterns of injuries involving renal parenchyma by light microscopy and reaching a correct diagnosis by assimilating immunofluorescence and electron microscopy findings.
The book is divided into four sections: glomerular, vascular, tubulointerstitial, and transplant renal pathology. It is further divided into subsections based on the particular pattern of injury by light microscopy. A differential diagnosis is followed by real-life cases taken from the author’s practice, illustrated by numerous photomicrographs. It includes up-to-date classification schemes for membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) variants as well as Banff 97 criteria for acute cellular rejection and International Society of Nephrology/Renal Pathology Society (ISN/RPS) classification of lupus nephritis.
