This photomicrograph of a section of kidney tissue, included an area of nephritis, or inflammation, in which you could see numerous white blood cells that had infiltrated the region, in order to perform their duty as removers of the necrotic, dead kidney cells. You can also see in the lower, middle section, an area of what was described as capillary thrombosis, where thrombi, or blood clots, had occluded the capillary lumina. On the right, you can also see what could be described as normally appearing renal tubule cytoarchitecture, which as you gaze to the left, dissolves into disarray, with a disintegration of the tubular infrastructure. The reason for this condition was not made evident.
