As a companion to problem-oriented volume 2 of the Nephrology Today Series, this volume covers fundamentals in the clinical practice of nephrology. The book includes the work of 30 authors and is intended for general practitioners, medical students, residents, and nephrologists preparing for lectures. Overall, it is well written and covers the topics of diagnostic methods, common syndromes (acute nephritic syndrome, acute renal failure, chronic failure, and nephrotic syndrome), pediatric, pregnancy- and geriatric-related problems, major entities in renal diseases (primary glomerular diseases, systemic glomerulopathies, tubulointerstitial diseases, renal vascular diseases), and the management of nephrotic disorders.

The material is organized in ways that make it more accessible. For example, the instructions for the creatinine clearance test, the short acid load procedure, and the dehydration and vasopressin-stimulation procedure are provided in convenient tables. Similarly, essential information about the causes of idiopathic and secondary nephrotic syndrome is neatly outlined in concise tabular format.
