Abstract

Most of the chapters in this volume relate to the nutritional state of adult patients with end-stage renal disease. Dr. Holliday has addressed the contribution of undernutrition to poor statural growth in children with developing uremia. This chapter expands upon his and outlines the devastating effects of chronic renal insufficiency (CRI) on the developing central nervous system (CNS) of infants.
