Glomerulonephritis refers to a group of heterogeneous diseases linked by a common mechanism of immune-mediated basement membrane damage. The immunologic damage may also extend to the capillary endothelium or mesangium, leading to hematuria, proteinuria, and azotemia. Acute glomerulonephritis can be classified as either primary renal disease or renal manifestations secondary to an underlying illness. Regardless of the specific etiology, all forms of glomerulonephritis involve immune-mediated damage that relies on the activation of both humoral and cell-mediated pathways. The subsequent inflammatory cascade results in progressive fibrosis and ensuing complications.
Awesome It explained it down to the nitty gritty aspects Much appreciated
Too good, is what I was looking for the topic
Hello lecturers Team Brilliant lecturers from Dr C. Raj. Especially differential diagnostics in terms of pathology.And diff diagnostics are outstanding.
The lectures are pretty good but many of the ddx are dependent on the histo, EM, IM, etc findings. PLEASE provide a pointer for future lectures. Simply describing what we should be seeing is not as helpful - it's difficult to follow along.
