Überlegungen zur Ätiologie des Alport-Syndroms

Considerations to the etiology of the Alport's syndrome


A histological and ultrastructural study of the Alport's syndrome shows severe degenerative changes in the stria vascularis, the organ of Corti, a spreading of the perivasoular spaces, a multilayered basal membrane of the vas spirale and a partial degeneration of the spiral ganglion cells.

The etiological possibilities of these findings were discussed.
