Unique Features of Anatomy, Histology, and Ultrastructure Kidney, Mouse

  • Annabel G. Liebelt
Part of the Monographs on Pathology of Laboratory Animals book series (LABORATORY)


The anatomy of the mammalian kidney has been reviewed by Möllendorff (1929, 1930), Latta et al. (1967), and Rouiller (1969). The gross anatomy of the mouse kidney has been described by several authors, including Fekete (1941), Dunn (1949), Hummel et al. (1966), and Kriz and Koepsell (1974), as being similar in many respects to the kidneys of other mammals.
