The appearance of lupus nephritis on electron microscopy may vary
from small mesangial deposits to large subendothelial deposits
that may partially occlude glomerular capillary lumina. Here we
see both mesangial and subendothelial deposits.

mesangial and subepithelial deposits may be found occasionally in
