Definition: acquired diminution of the size of the outer portion of the kidney located between the renal capsule and the renal medulla, associated with wasting as from death and reabsorbtion of cells, diminished cellular proliferation, decreased cellular volume, pressure, ischemia, malnutrition, reduced function or malfunction, or hormonal changes
