Tissue deposition 1

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Female age 62

Tissue: Kidney

This woman had a long history of rheumatoid arthritis. Five years before her final admission to hospital she developed the nephrotic syndrome i.e. widespread oedema associated with proteinuria. Thereafter she received supportive treatment but her general condition deteriorated. She died with bronchopneumonia.
