Through 5 editions, "Pediatric Nephrology" has become the standard reference text for students, trainees, practicing physicians (Pediatricians, Nephrologists, Internists, and Urologists), sub-specialists, and allied health professionals seeking information about Children's Kidney Diseases. It is global in perspective, and reflects the international group of editors, who are well-recognized world's experts in Pediatric Nephrology. In a single text, the development of kidney structure and function is followed by detailed and comprehensive chapters on all childhood kidney diseases. These chapters, grouped by major disease categories, utilize molecular and cellular pathophysiology of disease to provide unique and comprehensive information of the current state of the art on all known childhood kidney diseases. Each chapter makes new genetic information easily explained for the practitioner, and uses many algorithms and diagrams to describe appropriate clinical evaluation of symptoms, differential diagnosis, specific diagnostics, and currently available therapies. The text is not only found in University/Hospital libraries, but on the shelves of sub-specialists, pediatricians, internists, urologists, and extensively in the clinics where it is used during clinical encounters with childhood kidney disease.

Clinical Decisions in Nephrology: A Problem-Solving Approach provides a useful resource for those interested in renewing their clinical knowledge, diagnostic and therapeutic skills in nephrology. Each chapter consists of a series of challenging, clinically-oriented cases. The selected case reports focus on the essential aspects of the patienta (TM)s presentation, laboratory data, and management to assist in the differential diagnosis. A series of logical questioning from the presentation of the signs and symptoms is followed by a detailed explanation that reviews recent publications and translates emerging areas of science into data that is useful at the bedside. An updated bibliography is included after each set of clinical cases.

Pediatric Nephrology is the premier comprehensive reference on congenital and acquired kidney diseases and their therapies in children. Section One opens with an overview of the anatomy, physiology, and biology of the pediatric kidney, critical to understanding disease. Section Two covers the evaluation, diagnosis, and therapy of specific kidney disorders. The book has an international focus, and is well knows for describing how research developments are applied in the clinical arena.

The focus of this book is to provide a nephrology reference manual for the developing paediatrician and pediatric nephrologist. Its objective is not only to inform but also to teach - one that inspires thinking in the reader. The contents and level of teaching in the manual are intended for trainees at four different levels: medical student, intern, resident and fellow. This handbook provides what other nephrology textbooks cannot - a useful and practical guidebook that is written to teach at a level that is appropriate for various stages of learning. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic, followed by several patient cases, and with an answer and discussion of each case.

This manual is designed to meet the everyday needs of the wide range of medical professionals across the globe who play a role in the treatment of children referred because of renal disease. It is an easy-to-use, portable guide that will assist pediatricians, residents, and trainees in making prompt and appropriate first-level management decisions. It will also prove invaluable for adult nephrologists who are responsible for the care of children in many developing areas of the world, and will serve as a teaching guide for experts when training non-subspecialists. Individual sections are devoted to the evaluation of renal disease; fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base disorders; glomerular diseases; tubular disorders; congenital, inherited, and urological disorders; consequences of renal disease; and miscellaneous topics. The text is in a bulleted format with tables and algorithms wherever possible, making it straightforward and easy to read. An appendix includes further important information such as normal values, drug dosages, dosage adjustment in renal failure, drug nephrotoxicity, and dietary recommendations. The complexities of pediatric nephrology like pathogenesis, intricate physiological aspects, and details of advanced management are deliberately avoided since these issues typically arise during tertiary care at a referral center. If you are searching for a practical, comprehensive guide on pediatric nephrology that will meet the first-line needs of all practitioners, whether in developed or developing countries, this manual will be ideal.

This comprehensive book combines a review of the basic physiology and pathophysiology of each renal disorder and disease entity with state-of-the-art medical management guidelines based on evidence and expert opinion. Each chapter focuses on the unique and frequently challenging circumstances in pediatric patients, which are oftentimes very different from those in adult patients. Starting with a logical approach to each individual problem as seen in the ICU, it covers the pathophysiology of the child, the diagnostic approach and gives valuable up-to-date treatment recommendations. Health-care providers in all areas of care and all levels of training will find this unique book helpful. Those new in the field can use it as a beginnera (TM)s guide to become familiar with certain topics and those more advanced in their medical career will gain useful hints and find updated information on specific clinical disease entities.
