Written by residents, fellows, and attending physicians, this thoroughly updated handbook is ideal for residents called on to do an inpatient consult, for students working on an inpatient medicine service, and for specialists seeking information on nephrology and general internal medicine management.

Appendices list dosing adjustments for antimicrobials and antiretrovirals for patients with renal impairment. Key points about the diagnosis and management of disorders are bulleted for easy reference. This edition also includes illustrations.
