    We present the histology and electromicroscopy of renal failure caused by ingestion of the mushroom species Cortinarius speciosissimus. Light microscopy revealed acute tubular necrosis, multinucleated tubular epithelial cells and concentric medial muscular hyperplasia of arteries. Electronmicroscopy showed the displaced and abnormal architecture of actin filaments at the periphery of the cytoplasm in renal tubular epithelial cells.
