About this book


The new edition of this valuable clinical resource offers a state of the art, comprehensive review on every clinical condition encountered in pediatric nephrology. International experts present the latest knowledge on epidemiology, diagnosis, management, and prognosis in one concise, clinically focused text, in which care has been taken to couple just the right amount of "need-to-know" basic science with practical clinical guidance that will enable the reader to make efficient, informed decisions. 


The topics covered in Pediatric Kidney Disease, Second Edition include: disorders of renal development, glomerular disorders, the kidney and systemic disease, renal tubular disorders, tubulointerstitial disease, urinary tract disorders, acute kidney injury, hypertension, chronic and end-stage renal disease, and renal replacement therapy. The disease-specific chapters offer detailed coverage of diagnostic work-up, laboratory evaluation, and management of disorders and complications. Information is also provided on important related issues, including the genetic origins of diseases, the potential value of proteomics in the evaluation of renal disorders, and a section completely dedicated to complement-related renal disorders

Pediatric Kidney Disease, Second Edition ensures that the practitioner is able to source and apply information with remarkable ease. It is also an ideal resource for those preparing for pediatric nephrology board examinations.
