FIGURE 10-41 (see Color Plate)

Pathology of Chinese herb nephropathy. The major pathologic lesion consists of extensive interstitial fibrosis with atrophy and loss of the tubules, predominantly located in superficial cortex [38,39]. A, A low-power view of transition between superficial cortex (left) and deep cortex (right) shows an extensive interstitial fibrosis with relative sparing of glomeruli. (Masson trichrome stain, magnification X 50.) B, A normal glomerulus surrounded by a paucicellular interstitial fibrosis and atrophic tubules. (Masson's trichrome stain, magnification X 300.)
