Excellently illustrated with photomicrographs and clinical diagrams supporting the chapters, Clinical Pediatric Nephrology features expanded case histories relating to the discussion and management of renal disease – thus ensuring that this is a highly useful reference tool for nephrologists and house officers in practice, as well as nephrology fellows in training.
