Subcapsular Injury (surgical)

Renal allograft biopsies sometimes sample the kidney capsule and extracapsular fibroadipose tissues. Histopathological changes in the immediate subcapsular parenchyma should not be used in grading acute rejection or chronic allograft nephropathy. Suture granulomas and fat necrosis are commonly observed findings without diagnostic significance.
