Today I would like to review with you the major clinical features of chronic interstitial renal disease. In my opinion, the term chronic interstitial disease should be applied to any structural renal disease in which the renal failure is due to scarring and fibrosis of the tissues surrounding the glomeruli rather than to direct glomerular damage. According to this definition, any case of renal failure where the initial cortical damage is to the interstitial tissue rather than to the glomeruli, is a case of interstitial renal disease.
