We have studied glomerular basal laminar thickness in biopsy material, using a simple technique involving 16 selected measurements per case. Twenty-nine biopsied cases of adult glomerular haematuria were examined together with 'diseased' controls represented by a variety of glomerulopathies including minimal-change disease and IgA nephropathy. 'Normal'(More)
