Chapter 9 traces the chronology of the move of diabetic kidney disease to the centre stage of nephrology. Starting from the mid-nineteenth century report of Griesinger, the first to appreciate that the kidney were involved in diabetes; and then leaping almost a century to the introduction of renal biopsy in the 1950s which, as in other glomerular disease, gave the first opportunities to observe earlier phases of the pathology than had before been observable only in autopsy studies.
