Morphology and Pathomorphology

Abstract

Study of morphometric parameters of podocyte foot processes showed that the increase of parathyroid hormone blood level causes dilatation of podocyte foot processes resulting from accumulation of calcium in the cells. Influence of the hormone on filtration processes in glomeruli as a result of its effect on podocytes is discussed.

Key words
