Primary renal calculi: Anderson-Carr-Randall progression?

Although numerous reports deal with the histology of renal medullary calcification, there has been only limited application of radiographic methods for its description. From routine autopsy material, findings on 61 kidneys studied by high resolution radiography are presented and related to those of Randall (1937), Anderson (1945), Carr (1954), and others. Histologically Anderson found microscopic plaques formed from coalesced calcific "droplets" in the pyramids of practically all of 168 kidneys, including some very young infants. Carr, using microradiographic techniques, also found calcific deposits in nearly all of 209 kidneys from patients over 9 years of age. Anderson and Car separately concluded that the calcific deposits they demonstrated could, by migration, form the subepithelial plaques that Randall observed earlier. The present work illustrates some radiologic aspects of renal calcification which seem to support a hypothesis that primary renal calculi result, under certain circumstances, from the migration of calcific deposits from the substance to the surface of renal papillae. In order to emphasize the pathogenetic sequence of the work of the previously mentioned authors, it is proposed that the sequence of events be...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain.
