Hooray for the medical student! He has not been forgotten. In less than 300 pages, Drs. Douglas and Kerr have admirably summarized the major problems of clinical importance in kidney disease. The first 2 of the 11 chapters are devoted to the signs, symptoms, and laboratory evaluation of renal disease. Next follow sections on acute renal failure, chronic renal failure, and the nephrotic syndrome, all of which are particularly well written. The remaining chapters, which relate kidney disease to infection, allergy, hypertension, heredity, systemic disease, and surgery, are uniformly excellent.
