What is renal parenchymal disease?
Kidney can be divided into renal parenchyma and renal pelvis, and renal parenchyma consists of renal cortex and renal medulla, and these parts are in charge of kidney function.
When kidney damage appears in renal parenchyma, patients will be thought to have renal parenchymal disease.
