A clinical reference book on nephrology.

The clinical practice of nephrology is intricately related to many medical disciplines and is a challenging subject for medical undergraduates and young clinicians alike. Integrated Systematic Nephrology is a clinical reference book that provides comprehensive yet succinct and systematic coverage of topics in nephrology. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to cover recent advances in nephrology clinical practice and research and has been expanded to include a vast array of subjects that are crucial to anyone interested in learning about the latest developments in renal medicine more broadly. This volume brings together contributions from highly experienced nephrologists, as well as leading specialists in related disciplines such as urology, radiology, pathology, and others. It is suitable for a wide audience, ranging from undergraduates, general physicians, to nephrology trainees.
