Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
Glomerular collapse is one of the morphological patterns of response of
kidney parenchyma to a variety of noxious agents. As such, it is
commonly observed on renal biopsies showing a variety of diseases. It is
important to report this lesion in the context of underlying major
pathology so as not to confuse it with idiopathic collapsing
glomerulopathy. The prognosis of this lesion is determined in such cases
by the underlying pathology.
