These images are all from a urine sediment. The first image shows phase contrast microscopy of dysmorphic red blood cells. The second image is scanning microscopy of the same phenomenon. The third image shows free red cells and a red cell cast. These findings are virtually pathognomonic for glomerulonephritis or vasculitis.
