Figure 4.21. Sagittal section through an abnormal kidney. Note the urate deposits which are present as crystals in the collecting tubules and form golden brown aggregates described as "uric acid infarcts." They are obvious to the naked eye in about 15 to 20% of autopsies, but are washed out when the kidneys are fixed. Uric acid infarcts in neonatal kidneys are frequent in dehydration, sepsis, and erythroblastosis fetalis.
