Immunologic Renal Disease

Immunologic Renal Disease In this age of rapid advances and instant communication, each new textbook is potentially more useful than its predecessor because it is more up to date. This particular one is detailed, elegantly illustrated, and well written. It covers the immunology of renal diseases in just over 1200 pages, of which the last 400 are dedicated to clinical nephrology, starting off with a discussion of hematuria and proteinuria, the nephrotic syndrome, and the uses and perils of renal biopsy. A brief but nicely illustrated review of renal morphology is followed by chapters on immunosuppressive drugs and the interpretation of clinical studies and meta-analyses. Next come discussions of the primary glomerular diseases and some of the secondary ones, notably lupus, vasculitis, HIV infection, and certain systemic diseases, generally well written and bringing the reader up to date with the latest views on therapy.

Abstract

In this age of rapid advances and instant communication, each new textbook is potentially more useful than its predecessor because it is more up to date. This particular one is detailed, elegantly illustrated, and well written. It covers the immunology of renal diseases in just over 1200 pages, of which the last 400 are dedicated to clinical nephrology, starting off with a discussion of hematuria and proteinuria, the nephrotic syndrome, and the uses and perils of renal biopsy. A brief but nicely illustrated review of renal morphology is followed by chapters on immunosuppressive drugs and the interpretation of clinical studies and meta-analyses. Next come discussions of the primary glomerular diseases and some of the secondary ones, notably lupus, vasculitis, HIV infection, and certain systemic diseases, generally well written and bringing the reader up to date with the latest views on therapy.
