Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Kidney biopsies from 17 children were investigated by light microscopy (also of ultrathin sections), electron microscopy and basement membrane measurements. In cases of the nephrotic syndrome, electron microscopy helps in the differentiation of the 'minimal lesions' glomerulonephritis and the early phase of focal sclerosing glomerulopathy. Further, it gives good results of mono and oligosystemic diseases of the kidney. In the author's material, electron microscopy contributed to a more differentiated diagnosis in 2/3rds of the cases investigated. It is stressed that light microscopic investigation should be completed by the examination of ultrathin sections even when there are no possibilities of electron microscopic study.
