Some of the topics covered in the book are the different types of congenital deformities of the kidneys, ureters, and bladder; connections between kidneys, bladder, and the ureters; description of renal blood flow; mechanism of glomerular filtration; description of tubular function; urine concentration and dilution; mechanism of sodium and potassium excretion. Other chapters deal with the mechanism of urea excretion, the role of kidneys in the regulation of acid-base concentration, and the evaluation of the operation of renin-angiotensin system. The determination of the function of the renal is presented. The final chapters are devoted to the diagnosis and clinical features of acute glomerulonephritis and recurrent hematuria.
