Paediatric Nephrology is designed to help the reader understand and manage any condition affecting the kidney in childhood. It is pocket-sized to give easy reference in the clinical setting and highlights the important issues for quick use. From history taking and urinalysis, to acute renal failure, transplantation and actute kidney injury, all aspects are covered in this concise yet comprehensive guide to this specialist area. It is an invaluable reference to the general paediatrician.

The appendix provides useful additional information and protocols. This new edition is up-to-date and evidence-based, and tables and equations direct readers to correct drug dosages and use of relevant medication.
