This text updates a classic clinical nephrology reference for primary care physicians, housestaff, or medical students. It is a general renal text that is broad in scope, although not detailed enough to serve as a reference for the practicing nephrologist. The selected reading lists at the end of each chapter focus on specific topics and are particularly useful because they include classic papers as well as representative current literature.
Each topic is presented in a readable format that proceeds logically from the key elements of structural and functional abnormalities to clinical features and differential diagnosis and concludes with treatment recommendations. The final chapter is a useful and current handbook of tests, procedures, and treatments; the treatment section focuses on drug dosage adjustments necessary for renal failure management and appropriate dietary manipulation.
