About this book

This manual will meet the everyday needs of the wide range of medical professionals who play a role in the treatment of children referred to hospital because of renal disease. It is an easy-to-use, portable guide that will assist pediatricians, residents, and trainees in making prompt first-level management decisions. It will also prove invaluable for the adult nephrologists who care for children in many developing countries, 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, and drug nephrotoxicity.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an excellent, multiauthored overview of pediatric nephrology. … The book would most benefit students, residents, and fellows with a focused interest in pediatric nephrology. … This manual is certainly a very good resource for general pediatricians, but it also can serve as a very reliable source of review for various levels of pediatric postgraduate trainees. … I will definitely recommend it as a quick guide to all pediatricians and pediatric nephrology trainees.” (Aftab Chishti, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2014)
