Acute tubular necrosis may be manifest only by regenerating flattened tubular epithelium without frank necrosis of individual tubular cells, as shown in some tubules to the right of the glomerulus, by bleebbing and individual cell degenration (top left), or by frank necrosis ( middle). There is minimal accompanying interstitial infiltrate (periodic acid Schiff stain, x 100).
