The tissue obtained was studied by light and electron microscopy. All patients had a very similar glomerular lesion with (1) swelling and slight proliferation of the endotheliat cells, (2) increase in the number of mesangial cells and the amount of the mesangial matrix, and (3) granular deposits derived from fibrinogen within the endothelial cells… CONTINUE READING
