About this book

This updated new edition provides a concise and practical guide to the interpretation of renal biopsy specimens. Each chapter has been updated to cover recent advances, with current terminology and information about newly recognized conditions. The latest classification systems and their practical application are included.

Handbook of Renal Biopsy Pathology, Third Edition shows readers how the diagnosis can be made from the clinical indication for the biopsy, and interpretation of changes in the specimen. The book is relevant to trainee and practicing pathologists and nephrologists, and to others with contact with people with renal disorders, such as transplant surgeons, dialysis and transplant nurses, pharmacists, and medical students.
