Abstract

Abstract

Differential counts of glomerular eosinophils and neutrophils were performed on renal biopsies from 16 patients with diffuse proliferative and exudative glomerulonephritis. The results indicate that eosinophils and neutrophils are present in the glomerular exudate in the same proportion as in the peripheral blood. The eosinophilia present in some of the cases could not be etiologically related to the acute nephritis and probably represented a chance association, showing how a well known histological entity can sometimes be modified in a tropical environment. The functional effects, if any, of this modification require further study.
