glycogen vacuolization of the loops of Henle, seen in diabetics before the introduction of insulin.

Armanni-Ebstein change

A global term for a histopathological finding commonly seen in patients with diabetes mellitus, which was described by L Armanni (1839–1903) and W Ebstein (1836–1912) in the pre-insulin era. It is reversible, less common in the current environment and consists of marked cytoplasmic (glycogen-induced) vacuolisation; it is classically seen in proximal convoluted tubules of the kidney, but also in the beta islet cells and hepatocytes.
