cap·su·lar space

the slitlike space between the visceral and parietal layers of the capsule of the renal corpuscle; it opens into the proximal tubule of the nephron at the neck of the tubule.

In our and others' experience, periglomerular fibrosis cannot be equated with atubular glomeruli because, many times, connection of the Bowman space to the proximal tubule is preserved.
There are 2 main patterns of glomerular solidification (Figure 1): In most primary and secondary glomerular diseases, glomeruli undergo matrix overproduction or impaired matrix degradation and turn globally sclerotic with material that is positive for periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) and methenamine silver occupying most of the Bowman space.
Cells and mediators from the interstitium enter the Bowman space resulting in disruption of the Bowman capsule, which leads to development of crescents.
