Renal Interstitium The interstitium of the kidney consists of connective tissue and cells. The interstitial volume is relatively scant compared to the tubules and glomeruli (<10% of the total). Some interstitial cells resemble fibroblasts and control the synthesis and secretion of extracellular matrix. These cells are believed to play a pivotal role in the development of renal fibrosis in diseases characterized by progressive loss of renal function. Phagocytic cells are also present in the interstitium.
