Description:This photomicrograph revealed the cytoarchitectural histopathologic changes detected in a kidney sample taken from a Marburg patient (case #1) treated in Johannesburg, South Africa, 1975.
This slide depicts findings indicative of acute tubular necrosis (ATN), and glomerular fibrin thromboses resulting from a Marburg disease infection. Both of these are symptoms of not only Marburg virus, but other viral hemorrhagic fevers as well.
