Glomerulopathy in acute and chronic rejection: relationship of ultrastructure to graft survival.


The glomerular ultrastructure was retrospectively reviewed from 45 renal transplant biopsies with the clinical and light microscopic diagnosis of acute rejection (25 cases) and chronic rejection (20 cases). Three grades of morphologic alteration were ultrastructurally defined. In acute rejection, capillary lumenal obliteration with endothelial cell… (More)
