Electron microscope studies on renal biopsies from patients with ischaemic anuria, lipoid nephrosis, multiple myelomas and diabetes mellitus

  • Ole Z. Dalgaard


The introduction of the renal biopsy method by Iversen and Brun in 1951 (5) made electron microscopy of human kidney tissue a practical possibility. Rhodin (6,7) has shown that all the cellular structure undergo very rapid post-mortem changes. Renal biopsy, however, makes it possible to obtain the necessary fresh tissue. Furthermore, repeated observations can be made on the same patient.
