It ended up being three hours and my appendix was almost rotten and I had a tubular cyst
the size of a pencil and cysts on my ovaries.
Occasionally, the epithelium of a tortuously dilated tubular cyst simulates glomerular cysts, but epithelial membrane antigen immunoreactivity establishes the tubular origin (Figure 5).
The main renal complications of lithium toxicity/ nephropathy are glomerular in nature and include focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, interstitial fibrosis, and glomerular or tubular cysts.
They are characterized by renal tubular cysts
lined by a single layer of cuboidal, occasionally ciliated cells with hyperchromatic nuclei and scanty cytoplasm reminiscent of the primitive renal tubules normally seen during renal development, as well as immature glomeruli or renal tubules separated by an immature mesenchyme that tends to form hypercellular concentric rings with frequent myofibroblastic differentiation around the cysts or primitive tubules.
