4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!

"In the Harrison's tradition, this book integrates pathophysiology with clinical management while outlining discoveries in genetics and molecular biology. It includes some important chapters that are not found in similar books: one on adaptation of the kidney to renal injury (including factors and mechanisms of renal disease progression) and one on hyperuricemia and gout. The introductory chapter on the basic biology of the kidney, covering renal development, function, and physiology, is very well written. This book meets the expected Harrison's standards and reading it is a satisfying experience."—Doody's Review Service
