Renal and Transplant Pathology

Renal pathology is a subspecialty of anatomic pathology that deals with the diagnosis and characterization of non-tumor (medical diseases, including transplanted kidney diseases) of the kidneys. Renal pathologists work closely with nephrologists, transplant surgeons and urologists, who typically obtain diagnostic specimens via percutaneous renal biopsy and nephrectomy. In non-tumor kidney disease tissue, the renal pathologist must synthesize findings from light microscopy, electron microscopy, and immunofl uorescence with clinical information to obtain a definitive diagnosis.
