A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mony Fraer, MD, FACP, FASN (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This offshoot of Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine, 17th edition, Fauci et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2008), provides a relatively comprehensive overview of the major nephrology topics.
Purpose: This compact book is not intended to offer quick answers at the bedside, but to be used as a source for a more in-depth review of renal pathology.
Audience: The expertise of authoritative editors and authors is channeled into this book designed for trainees and clinicians who are treating patients with kidney diseases.
Features: This is a very visual book with a large array of full-color pictures, treatment sections highlighted in blue, numerous tables, graphs, figures, and algorithms, all printed on glossy paper, which make it very easy reading. The 63 high-yield self-assessment questions and answers are a helpful tool for exam preparation. Seven sections cover an introduction to the renal system, alterations of renal function and electrolytes, acute and chronic renal failure, glomerular and tubular disorders, renal vascular disease, urinary tract infections and obstruction, and cancer of the kidney and urinary tract. An added bonus is the Atlas of Urinary Sediments and Renal Biopsies. In the familiar style, a handful of selected references end each chapter. The 12-page index is adequate and the appendix highlights laboratory values of clinical importance.
Assessment: 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.
