Pathology Case Study: Nephrotic Syndrome and Gross Hematuria

The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine's Department of Pathology has compiled a series of case studies to help both students and instructors in the health sciences field. The patient treated in this case is a 20 year-old man with flank pain. Information on the initial examination and lab results are provided in the "Patient History" section. The "Gross Description," "Microscopic Description," "Immunofluorescence Examination" and "Electron Microscope Examination" sections provide key information and images that contributed to the patient's diagnosis. Clicking on the "Final Diagnosis" will lead you to a thorough explanation of the diagnosis and illness from the patient's doctors.
