Light Microscopy. There is marked, global, homogeneous, eosinophilic thickening of the glomerular basement membrane with segmental accentuation. Homogeneous, eosinophilic globules are seen in the lumen of occasional capillary loops. The capillary lumina appear reduced in diameter but no inflammatory or proliferative changes are observed. The periglomerular interstitial space shows lymphocytic infiltration. Focal interstitial deposition of homogeneous eosinophilic material is present in the right upper corner of the picture (H&E × 400).
