5.2 Mitochondriopathy
Definition: Mitochondrial abnormailies due to drugs are found in cells of the proximal tubules. The mitochondria differ in number, size (giant mitochondria / megamitochondria), shape, and structure of cristae from normal tissue. Giant mitochondria are visible by light microscopy as inclusion bodies in individual tubular cells.
5.3 Phenacetin kidney
Definition: Renal disease due to phenacetin containing mixed analgesics
5.4 Phospholipidosis (M. Fabry-like lesion)
