About this book


Clinical Decisions in Nephrology: A Problem-Solving Approach provides a useful resource for those interested in renewing their clinical knowledge, diagnostic and therapeutic skills in nephrology. Each chapter consists of a series of challenging, clinically-oriented cases. The selected case reports focus on the essential aspects of the patient’s presentation, laboratory data, and management to assist in the differential diagnosis. A series of logical questioning from the presentation of the signs and symptoms is followed by a detailed explanation that reviews recent publications and translates emerging areas of science into data that is useful at the bedside. An updated bibliography is included after each set of clinical cases.

Farahnak Assadi, M.D., is Professor of Pediatrics, Director, Section of Pediatric Nephrology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois.
