Giving an outline of the anatomical changes which occur in "medical" diseases of the kidney, this book provides an easily understandable introduction to the subject for trainees in histopathology or clinical medicine, particularly those developing a special interest in renal histopthology or renal medicine, as well as an overview for those working in other fields. Clarity is aided by hundreds of micrographs, tables and diagrams. The second edition has been completely revised and updated with coverage of many new, diverse topics such as metabolic disturbances, HIV-associated nephropathy, and the diagnosis of vasulitis - and the inclusion of plentiful redrawn diagrams.
An introductory chapter on needle biopsy is followed by descriptions of normal renal histology and development and cystic diseases. A further section is devoted to the pathogenesis of glomerulonephritis and its classification. Succeeding chapters deal systematically with diseases which are grouped, as far as possible, in accordance with their clinical presentation: glomerulonephritides related to infection, nephrotic syndrome, hearmaturic conditions, acute renal failure, vascular lesions, systemic lupus erythematosus, metabolic disorders, and tubulointerstitial and iatrogenic conditions and infections. The final chapter is concerned with end-stage renal failure and transplantation. Most of the conditions commonly met with are covered.
The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.
