Kimmelstiel and Wilson,1 in their original description of the lesions of intercapillary glomerulosclerosis, noted the occasional presence of fat in the involved glomeruli. They did not attach any great significance to this finding. Subsequent authors2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 have also made casual reference to glomerular lipid deposits in this condition. Such lipid deposits were apparently considered to be of only incidental interest because they are not always present in intercapillary glomerulosclerosis and because they have been described in a variety of unrelated renal lesions.8, 9 Simon,10 however, stressed the frequent occurrence of fatty material in glomeruli that contained
