ABSTRACT Background/Aim: Effacement of the epithelial cell foot processes of glomerular podocytes are thought to be diffuse in the primary form of focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). In contrast, effacements that occur in the secondary form of FSGS are thought to be focal. To evaluate this theory, the extent of epithelial cell foot process effacement was analyzed and compared in podocytes from cases of primary and secondary FSGS. Methods: Consecutive cases of adult primary and… Expand
