Renal tubular disorders comprise a relatively diverse group of conditions characterized by defects in renal handling of one or more substances. Although many of these disorders have been studied and characterized with standard clearance techniques, the pathophysiologic characteristics underlying the clinical features of the syndrome and the molecular defects causing the transport disorders remain unclear. Recent advances in biochemical, physiologic, and morphologic techniques have permitted a marked increase in our understanding of normal renal tubular transport processes at the cellular, subcellular, and molecular level.
These comprehensive reviews of the classic renal tubular disorders, incorporating current concepts of renal tubular transport
