A Case of Hepatic Glomerulosclerosis with Monoclonal IgA1- Deposits

Figure 3

Electron microscopy findings. Electron microscopic examination showed nonorganized deposits in the subendothelial area along the glomerular basement membrane and paramesangial area ((a), original magnification 12,000×; (b), original magnification 50,000×). Because no glomeruli were identified in the portion of the biopsy specimen fixed in glutaraldehyde, the formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded specimen was reprocessed for electron microscopy. Arrows indicate nonorganized deposits.
