Glomerular Diseases: Clinicopathologic Correlation

Glomeruli are basically filters. When things go wrong, they:

  • Leak (protein, RBCs, etc)
  • Don’t work (no filtrate)

How do we correlate clinical presentation with specific glomerular diseases and morphology? 

Here is a Mindmap that helps tie in the clinicopathologic correlation. Many of the conditions mentioned in this mindmap are Primary Glomerular diseases. There are secondary and systemic conditions that can also cause nephrotic and nephrotic syndrome, mentioned in your lecture notes

For specific disease aetiologies, pathogenesis and clinical course, please refer to your notes.
