Renal glomeruli, membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis
Fluorescent antibody stain for IgM.
Fluorescent antibody stain for IgG.
Fluorescent antibody stain for C3.
Routine H&E stain. PAS stain. Silver stain
These images portray renal glomeruli as seen with six different stains, all of which reveal to a greater or lesser extent the accumulation of material in the area of the mesangium and glomerular basement membrane, associated with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. (All six images are from the same clinical case.)
