Overview

The book contains eight chapters dealing with the pathology of tubulointerstitial disease of the kidney and also a detailed update of the pathology of human renal cystic disease. Emphasis is placed on the prognostic importance of recognizing tubulointerstitial damage and discussed in detail are the present knowledge of the mechanisms of this damage and the possible reasons for the apparent disparity between the extent of glomerular damage and progression to chronic renal failure.
The book is of equal relevance to renal physicians, scientists working in renal medicine research, and pathologists. In keeping with current trends in pathology, the histopathological discussion is supplemented by morphometric and molecular biology techniques.
