A great summary of the most important features and diagnostic clues!
By Fior d. on 22. January 2021 for Diabetic Nephropathy – Secondary Nephrotic Syndrome

I used to mix up all the details about nephritic and nephrotic syndromes before and this is the first time it all came together and made sense. The lecture is a good mix of pathology review and clinically important info and the aesthetically pleasing slides plus the cases help a lot with memorisation. Thank you!
