In the 16 cases with positive glomerular C4d staining, 13 had diffusely granular deposition of C4d along the peripheral capillary loops and mesangial areas (Figure 2); 2 cases had diffuse granular deposition of C4d in the tubular basement membrane and mesangial matrix but not in the peripheral capillary loops; and 1 case had focal granular pattern of C4d deposition in the mesangium, peripheral capillaries, and tubular basement membrane.
[P.sub.GC], [P.sub.BS], and [[PI].sub.BS] remain essentially unchanged along the capillary loop. As a result, NFP decreases along the length of the capillary and in some species is zero before or at the end of the capillary.
One hundred and eighty-nine (81.8%) of these individuals showed granular staining of PLA2R along the capillary loops in their glomeruli [Figure 2].{Figure 1}{Figure 2}
Caption: The second punch biopsy showed a subepidermal split along with dyskeratotic keratinocytes within the epidermis and widely dilated capillary loops.
Diffuse lesions are composed of a widespread increase in eosinophilic material within the mesangium, which stains positive with periodic acid-Schiff (PAS), and uniform widening of the capillary loops. The glomerular basement membranes (GBMs) are thickened, which, along with mesangial expansion, leads to decreased patency of capillary lumens and decreased ultrafiltration surface area.
Electron microscopy showed massive subepithelial deposits in almost all capillary loops in the PHN group with severely affected podocytes (Figure 4).
The microvascular damage that portends subsequent definite scleroderma follows a characteristic chronologic sequence consisting of enlarged capillary loops, followed by capillary loss, and capillary telangiectasias the rheumatologist explained.
[less than or Placental weight (g) equal to] 342 1 point Placental [less than or diameter (cm) equal to] 15 1 point Placental infarctions Yes 1 point Free-villi major 57 [+ or -] 19.7 1 point diameter (tum) Capillary loops Yes 1 point Blood vessel Yes 1 point dilatation in peripheral capillaries Undifferentiated Yes 1 point stroma with few colagen fibres Total 7 points
Mesangial cells are located between the capillary loops of the glomerulus and form a support network within the tuft.
At an obvious area of leukoplakia, magnifying narrow-band imaging (NBI) endoscopy showed Type B1 intrapapillary capillary loops (IPCLs), demonstrating dilatation, tortuosity, caliber change, and distinct morphology [Figure 1]b.
Physical examination was remarkable for puffy, swollen digits (Figure 1) and nail fold changes consisting of dilated capillary loops at the base of the nails bilaterally of all fingers, which were clearly visible to the naked eye (Figure 2).
Therefore, it appears that even a single glomerulus with open capillary loops in the tissue for immunofluorescence (IF) and/ or electron microscopy (EM) is sufficient to evaluate for immune complex deposition.
