Morphologic variants of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. (A) Capillary collapse and podocyte hyperplasia are characteristic features of the collapsing variant. (B) In the tip variant, segmental lesion involves the glomerular tuft next to the tubular pole. (C) The perihilar variant is diagnosed when sclerosis or hyalinosis are present in perihilar lesion in more than half of the sclerotic glomeruli. | Lim, B. J., Yang, J. W., Do, W. S., & Fogo, A. B.
