Pathology, pathogenesis, and clinical features of severe lupus nephritis

Show Summary Details

Preview

The way in which severe segmental and DGGN are defined has changed in successive classifications, but the glomerular pathology, seen under the microscope, has remained unchanged. In this chapter, we present the pathological and clinical features of SLN and discuss how the 1982 WHO classification as applied by the Lupus Nephritis Collaborative Study Group and the ISN/RPS classification have affected the pathogenetic and prognostic implications of the diagnosis of SLN.
