Anatomical terminology

The renal lobe is a portion of a kidney consisting of a renal pyramid and the renal cortex above it.[1]

It is visible without a microscope, though it is easier to see in humans than in other animals.

It is composed of many renal lobules, which are not visible without a microscope.
