This textbook provides a broad review of kidney diseases with regard to symptoms, investigation and treatment. It deals with a variety of clinical entities, such as glomerulonephritis, renal stones, hypertension, urinary infection and renal failure. Chapters on dialysis and transplantation highlighting local incidence and statistics are included. The current concepts and therapies of kidney diseases as well as the latest statistics on kidney diseases are also covered. In this edition, the author has incorporated the results of recent clinical trials in renal therapeutics into various chapters of the book, and provided abstracts and references where relevant.Presently, there are several books on the market written by authors in the West, but they do not adequately cover the knowledge and experience of the patterns of renal diseases in the Asia-Pacific region.Written in a clear and concise style, Clinical Nephrology will serve as an invaluable practical guide for medical students and doctors preparing for their higher examinations.
