arteriosclerotic nephritis

arteriosclerotic nephritis
a type of nephritis resulting either from the aging process, with hyaline changes of the large and small arterioles, or from hypertension, with hyaline or muscular changes of the small arterioles in the glomerular hilum. Renal damage occurs primarily through ischemic atrophy of the tubules with resultant focal or diffuse fibrosis of interstitial tissue.
