Renal Biopsy: Clinical Correlations 2019

Location: 202, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

This session includes complex renal biopsy cases presented by renal pathologists in a mini clinicopathologic conference with a nephrologist as the clinical discussant. Case histories and biopsy images are on the ASN website prior to the meeting for review. Digital slides and case materials are available for review on site in the digital microscopy room, with renal pathologists available to answer questions. A syllabus with the diagnoses, additional images, and discussion of the disease entities is provided by each pathologist for their individual case.

ASN thanks the Renal Pathology Society for assistance with this session and support of the Digital Pathology Room.
