Histology of kidney

HISTOLOGY OF KIDNEY

Dr Iram Tassaduq


General organization of renal structure

GENERAL ORGANIZATION OF RENAL STRUCTURE

Capsule

Cortex

• Cortical labryinth

• Medullary rays

Medulla

• renal pyramids

• cortical/renal columns

Renal pelvis

Major and minor calyxes


Lobes and lobules

LOBES AND LOBULES

Each kidney lobe consists of a medullary pyramid and its associated cortex.

A renal lobule is defined as a portion of the kidney containing thoseNephrons that are served by a common collecting duct.  


Blood supply

BLOOD SUPPLY


Renal capsule

RENAL CAPSULE

  • Comprised of 2 layers

  • Outer mainly consist of collagen fibers

  • Inner mainly has

    myofibroblast


Histology of kidney

  • URINEFEROUS TUBULE

Nephron

Collecting tubule


Histology of kidney

  • PARTS OF NEPHRON


Renal corpuscle

RENAL CORPUSCLE


Cortical labyrinth

CORTICAL LABYRINTH

Renal corpuscle

Convoluted tubule


Histology of kidney

  • BOWMANS CAPSULE


Histology of kidney

  • GLOMERULUS


Mesengial cells

MESENGIAL CELLS

  • found within the glomerulus. These cells secrete a matrix of basement membrane-like material to support the structure of the glomerulus.


Proximal convulated tubule

PROXIMAL CONVULATED TUBULE

  • Longest and tortous part of nephron

  • Commences at urinary pole

  • Occupies major part of cortex

  • Lined by low columnar epithelium

  • Show brush border

  • Absorb sodium


Loop of henle

LOOP OF HENLE

The thin segment of Henle's loop leads into the straight part of the distal tubule, which is formed by low cuboidal cells without a brush border. A few short microvilli are present

Epithelial cells in the ascending parts of the intermediate and straight distal tubules cells transport chloride (active) and sodium ions (passive) out of the tubular lumen into the surrounding peritubular space.

The epithelium can not be penetrated by water. Consequently, the transport of ions over the epithelium sets up a gradient in osmotic pressure, which serves as driving force in the further concentration of the urine.


Distal convulated tubule

DISTAL CONVULATED TUBULE

  • Slightly tortous

  • Lined by simple cuboidal epithelium

  • Absorption of sodium and chloride


Collecting duct

COLLECTING DUCT

Excretory ducts

Present in medullary ray

Lined by simple cuboidal epithelium

Transport urine from nephron to renal pelvis


Histology of kidney

  • MEDULLARY RAYS

  • Formed of straight tubules and collecting duct


Juxta glomerular complex

JUXTA GLOMERULAR COMPLEX


Macula densa

MACULA DENSA

  • Specialized region of DCT

  • Cells are tall columnar

  • Closely packed nuclei

  • Thin and discontinuous basal lamina

  • Release renin


Juxta glomerular cells

JUXTA GLOMERULAR CELLS

  • Present adjacent to macula densa

  • Epithelioid cells in tunica media

  • Large in size

  • Internal elastic lamina is absent


Extra glomerular mesengial cells

EXTRA GLOMERULAR MESENGIAL CELLS

  • Form a cushion of cells between afferent and efferent arteriole

  • Structurally resemble intraglomerular cells

  • Functional significance not clear
