Generic text

LM

The specimen consists of [#] cores of renal cortex and medulla containing up to XX glomeruli, [#] of which are globally sclerosed. The remaining glomeruli are [enlarge/normal size], show [no/mild/moderate/severe] hyalinosis, and [no/a mild/a moderate/a severe] increase of mesangial matrix. There is [no/a mild/a moderate/a severe] increase in mesangial cellularity. The glomarular capillaries are [patent/collapsed] [with/without] endocapillary hypercellularity. The glomerular capillary walls [are within normal limits/are prominent/show spike formation/tram-tracking]. There is [mild/moderate/severe] interstitial firosis and tubular atrophy. There is [no/mild/moderate/severe] hyaline arteriololsclerosis and [no/mild/moderate/severe] atherosclerosis.

IF

The specimens has [#] glomeruli.

EM

The semithin blue sections show [#] glomeruli. The mesangium is [XXX]. There are [no] immune-type electron-dense deposits. Tubuloreticular inclusions are [present/absent]. The glomerular basement membrane is [normal/thinned/thickened]. The podocyte foot processes are [XXX].
