About this book

Over the course of the previous seven editions, Pediatric Nephrology has become the standard reference text for students, trainees, practicing physicians (pediatricians, nephrologists, internists, and urologists), subspecialists, and allied health professionals seeking information about children’s kidney diseases. It is global in perspective, reflecting the fact that the international group of editors are all acknowledged world experts. 

The latest edition of this text is no different, providing a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview on pediatric nephrology. Much like the previous edition, the latest edition reviews the most critical aspects of the field. Topics covered include developmental physiology and diseases, renal physiology and diagnostic approaches, glomerular disease, kidney involvement in systemic diseases, renal tubular disorders, homeostasis, cystic kidney disease and related disorders, urinary tract disorders, hypertension, acute kidney injury, and chronic kidney failure.

Unlike the previous edition, however, the chapters in this edition now combine physiology, clinical management, and pathology for ease of use. The latest edition also includes a new section on the evaluation of different disorders that can have multiple etiologies, setting the stage for the evaluation and management of specific diseases. 

This book serves as a superb resource and an invaluable asset for practitioners, health professionals, and trainees seeking out information about children's kidney diseases.

Dr. Emma received his Medical Degree and specialized in Pediatrics from the Catholic University of Louvain, Brussels, Belgium. He then completed his training in Pediatric Nephrology at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School. In 1998, Dr. Emma moved to the Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital - IRCCS, in Rome, where he has set-up the Nephrology Research Laboratory and was appointed Chief of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology in 2005. He currently holds the position of Head of the Department of Pediatric Subspecialties.
Dr. Emma has authored more than 160 research articles in peer-reviewed journals and is the author of several textbook chapters and one of the editors of the Pediatric Nephrology textbook. He is the chair of the ESPN (European Society of Pediatric Nephrology) Working Group on Inherited Renal Disorders. His primary research interests are in rare renal diseases, in particular cystinosis and idiopathic nephrotic syndrome.
Stuart L. Goldstein, MD, has been an active investigator in the field of pediatric acute kidney injury (AKI) since 2000. Dr. Goldstein’s main research foci include: AKI epidemiology and outcomes, acute renal replacement therapy provision and investigation of novel urinary AKI biomarkers in the pediatric population. Dr. Goldstein has established a strong record of interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaboration with cardiologists, intensivists and emergency center physicians, which is evidenced by his establishment and directing of the Prospective Pediatric Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy Registry from 2001 to 2012, and the Prospective Pediatric AKI Research Group (ppAKI-RG) in 2012. The ppAKI-RG is comprised of 52 centers from around the world with the goal of improving outcomes for the child with or at-risk for, AKI.
Carl Bates, MD, has had a career as a clinical pediatric nephrologist and basic research scientist for over 15 years. Dr. Bates was recruited to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2008, where he is currently Professor of Pediatrics, Cell Biology and Developmental Biology; Vice Chair of Basic Research in Pediatrics, Division Chief of Pediatric Nephrology; and co-Director of the Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship Training Program.
In addition to caring for children with pediatric kidney disease for many years, Dr. Bates has had an internationally-recognized research program focused on genetic regulation of kidney and bladder development, with more than 15 years of continuous funding by the National Institutes of Health. His mouse models of kidney and bladder disease have helped us understand many of the structural kidney and bladder birth defects seen in children, which make up the most frequent causes of kidney disease in children.
Dr. Shroff is a Consultant Pediatric Nephrologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital and looks after children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those on dialysis.
Dr. Shroff’s PhD and current research focus on cardiovascular disease in children with CKD, with particular emphasis on identifying and reducing the burden of modifiable risk factors in dialysis patients. She has supervised 3 MSc students and currently co-supervises 2 PhD students.
She says "I hope that my approach through ‘translational’ (bench-to-bedside) research will improve the lives of dialysis patients by reducing their risks of heart disease and bone problems".
She has published widely in her field and written educational reviews and book chapters.
Dr. Shroff is an associate editor for Pediatric Nephrology, the main journal in the field.
