Each section of the textbook has been critically and comprehensively edited under the auspices of one of the leading experts in the field. This text for this third edition has been ruthlessly edited, balanced, updated and pitched at the adult nephrologist. The emphasis throughout is on marrying advances in scientific research with clinical management. Where possible treatment algorithms are included to aid patient care.
