This volume offers a critical summary of current knowledge of diabetic glomerulosclerosis based primarily on the authors' careful clinical and pathologic studies of an adequate number of patients over an adequate period of time.

They point out repeatedly the value of looking under a polarizing microscope for anisotropic fatty cells and casts in the sediment of acid urine freshly obtained from patients in whom the possibility of diabetic glomerulosclerosis may be entertained.
They detail the natural history of the clinical variants of
