At some point, I probably should’ve learned something about histology, because it seems to be the key to differentiating the 40 million different types of glomerular diseases.
What I’m Apparently Supposed To Be Thinking: “Hmm.. podocyte foot process effacement and sclerosis of a portion of the glomerular tuft.”
What I’d Like To Soon Be Thinking: “There is something deeply wrong with that glomerulus.”
What I’m Actually Thinking: “Kidney.”
(… The sad thing is, I’d actually be proud to know it was a kidney by this picture alone, and can only be certain because, you know, hey – that’s, you know, what we’re studying these days.)
Yeah, it’s gonna be a long weekend.
