The anatomical pathology study will show a granulomatous process that may be accompanied by abundant plasma cells, lymphocytes, epithelioid cells and fibroblasts, with central gummatous necrosis, eosinophils and spirochaetes. The different forms of clinical presentation are listed in Table 1. These presentations are explained by increases in HIV human immunodeficiency virus patients and due to the inadequate use of antibiotics prophylactically and in treatment.


There is a hemorrhagic zone in the middle where the cells are dying or have not quite died, and then normal renal parenchyma at voma far right.
