The Urinary System

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Atlas of Toxicological Pathology

Abstract

Induced lesions affecting kidney and urinary bladder are included. In kidneys, changes affecting glomeruli, tubules, interstitium, and papilla are illustrated. These include degenerative, inflammatory, reparative, and proliferative changes. A few examples of induced tumours of kidney and urinary bladder are described.
