Severe interstitial inflammation was also a commendable observation in this study.

(a) 100x, chronic interstitial inflammation consisting of dense bronchocentric lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates, with significant interstitial fibrosis.
In addition, ischemia also induces significant interstitial inflammation and functional impairment/structural damage of small peritubular and glomerular blood vessels [29, 30, 33-35].
The proportion was calculated for the following four major components: (1) glomerular proliferation, (2) glomerular sclerosis, (3) interstitial inflammation, (4) interstitial fibrosis, and (5) crescentic formation, respectively.
The ISN/RPS classification stated a number of recommendations for reporting renal biopsy in a patient with LN including a detailed description of all of the findings by LM, IFM, and EM in an organized manner, followed by a diagnostic line summarising the class of LN, percentage of glomeruli with active and/or sclerotic lesions, grade of tubular atrophy, interstitial fibrosis, and interstitial inflammation. The use of activity and chronicity index [17] was also encouraged, but the superiority of the detailed description of the activity and chronicity parameters were stressed.
Although interstitial inflammation might cause quick vessel dilations in the early phase [29], the PTC dilation is more likely to be related to intraPTC inflammation, as the dilation cannot be observed in TCMR cases, which have more severe interstitial inflammation.
Renal biopsy was performed in order to better understand the graft dysfunctions which revealed accentuated tubular interstitial inflammation with some epithelial tubular nuclear atypia characterized by nuclear inclusion, cariomegaly and frosted glass appearance (Fig.
The presence of viral inclusions in the lungs with interstitial inflammation, hyaline membranes, and giant cells is generally accepted as a diagnostic finding for CMV and MV pneumonia, respectively, despite the extent of virus-infected cells present.
When crystal adherence does occur, it induces renal interstitial inflammation with migration of macrophages.
b) Interstitial disease was present in four cases (Patients A, B, C, and E), characterized by a generally bronchiolocentric pattern of interstitial inflammation and fibrosis of variable severity.
Splenic necrosis was also observed, as well as interstitial inflammation in the lungs.
