Nodular glomerulosclerosis



This is the lesion of Kimmelstiel-Wilson disease, one of the forms of diabetic glomerulosclerosis. Note the sclerotic

mesangial nodules in the glomerulus. Nodular mesangial lesions can occasionally occur in other glomerular disorders

such as membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis but this picture is almost pathognomonic of diabetes mellitus.
